(July 25, 2022) – The rulers of the sky are descending on the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium in September. Birds of prey with long sharp talons, hooked beaks, and highly developed eyesight and hearing are headed to Bristol. They’re raptors, the superior hunters of the avian world.

Eagles, owls, hawks, and falcons will be featured in live presentations, educational programs, and activities for bird enthusiasts of all ages. Audubon Raptor Weekend presents a unique opportunity for visitors to get up-close with many species and learn about their adaptations and habitats in this engaging, family-friendly weekend event.

Presenter Highlights
In addition to owl and hawk presentations by Audubon experts, wildlife rehabilitators from across the Northeast will bring their expertise with birds of prey to the event.

Connecticut-based raptor rehabilitator Mary-Beth Kaeser of Horizon Wings will return this year on Saturday, September 10. She will be presenting an eagle, American Kestrel, Peregrine Falcon, Red-shouldered Hawk and more.

Wildlife Rehabilitator and Connecticut Falconer Christine Peyreigne of Wilton, CT presents her popular raptor program with eagles, hawks and owls on Sunday, September 11.

Also on Sunday, the ever-popular presenters Marcia and Mark Wilson of Eyes on Owls will introduce the audience to a wide variety of live owls, some native to New England and other species that are found across the globe. The Wilsons will also explore the protection of owls and their habitats.

Entertaining and educational games and activities for families will be featured both days. Admission also provides access to the award-winning Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium and entrance to the Center’s 28-acre wildlife refuge, including aquarium exhibits, the scenic boardwalk to Narragansett Bay, and the Palmieri Pollinator Garden.
