This event was such a success pre-COVID, we've invited Ed and his birds back for another visit!
From owls to hawks, eagles to falcons, Texas is home to a wonderful variety of birds of prey. We typically focus on song birds in so many of our activities, we thought it would be interesting to spend some time learning about these amazing creatures.
To that end, we invited an expert, Ed Sones, with Austin Wildlife Rescue, to share some of his bird and their stories. Ed is very passionate about his feathered friends, their plight and restoring them to the wild. He will be bringing some of these friends with him. These are birds that have been rehabilitated but that are not able to be released back into the wild.
Well respected in the wildlife rehabilitation and conservation communities in and around Austin, Ed is also an engaging speaker. Join us to learn more about birds of prey and see some of these fierce-some predators up close and personal.
