Wild Mountain Birds: Get wild with some raptors!
Wild Mountain Birds will be presenting a Raptor Show. Annie Mardiney of Wild Mountain Birds, a wild bird rescue, rehabilitation, and educational programmer based in the Hudson Valley, will bring 8-10 native raptor species to the library for this exciting event. Viewers will get to see: a barred owl, a barn owl, screech owls, a red-tailed hawk, a red-shouldered hawk, a broad-winged hawk, and an American kestrel. She will also have a collection of wings that people can pick up, examine, and match with photos of the species.
Annie Mardiney has been a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator for over 10 years, and holds 4 licenses from NYS-DEC and US Fish & Wildlife for wild bird rehabilitation and education. She takes in around 300 wild birds a year that are injured or orphaned. Her education programs include: live (unreleasable) owls and hawks, and focuses on appreciating these magnificent birds, understanding their role in our environment, and steps we can take to protect them in the short and long term.
