'Close to Home' presents: AN UP CLOSE LOOK AT A LIVE GOLDEN EAGLE
Close to Home presents a public talk and slide show
THERE'S GOLD IN THE EAST BAY HILLS
AN UP CLOSE LOOK AT A LIVE GOLDEN EAGLE
Monday, Sept 12, 2005 7:30 P.M.
Montclair Presbyterian Church in Oakland
Diana Granados and Jenny Papka from Native Bird Connections will introduce
us to the world of raptors. They will bring a non-releasable golden eagle
for us to meet.
Raptors have always held special fascination for humans. The Bay Area is
blessed with a diversity of raptors, including the largest population of
golden eagles in the US. Learn about the important role these birds play in
their habitats. Golden eagles can spot a rabbit from over a mile away.
Being a raptor is also a risky business. Everyday thousands of birds,
nationwide, face death and injury. The causes are inexperience, power lines,
cars, windows and domestic pets. Learn about the caring work done to
rehabilitate injured wildlife and manage those who cannot be successfully
returned to the wild. Native Bird Connections, based in Martinez, is a group
of individuals who have worked for years in the field of wildlife
management. Diana Granados, the executive director, has over 30 years
experience with captive birds and rehabilitation work. She and Jenny Papka
will also provide a slide show.
