Wind in My Feathers Live Bird Show
with Sally Farrell

Monday, November 24 at 5pm at Gernon Brown Center
Wednesday, December 3 at 5pm at Taylor Park

The 45-60 minute program consists of a presentation of live, non-releasable raptors with accompanying lecture, supplemented with audio and visual aids such as photography, taped bird calls, owl castings, feather displays, skulls and owl feet.  A question and answer period follows the talk.  

Sally Farrell received her training at the Wildbird Rehabilitation Center of the New Orleans Audubon Zoo.  She is a raptor rehabilitator and educator with state and federal permits for New Orleans and the surrounding area.  Learn more about Wind in My Feathers here.    

This program kicks off our new Young Birders Association, a teen bird watching club that will teach solid field science and critical thinking skills, along with connecting participants to nature and allowing them the opportunity to see some really cool animals.
