Birds of Prey weekend

I got a chance to see a hawk and owl live animal program at the Rocky River Nature Center. The presentations were given by a staff member at the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center. He did a fantastic job with the information in the presentations, and it was thrilling to have live raptors only a couple feet away from me. He brought a kestrel, peregrine, red-tailed hawk, great horned owl, barred owl, and screech owl. Of course I had my camera with me and I got a couple good pictures, so I am planning on designing a couple owl and hawk papercuttings over the next couple months. Stay tuned!
