      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.
