Wild NYC Presentation

The "Wild NYC" panel at New York University last week went very well. After my presentation, Wildlife Rehabilitators Bobby and Cathy Horvath wrapped up the evening with a selection from their rescued animal menagerie. Diurnal raptors included American Kestrel, Peregrine Falcon, Red-tailed Hawk and Rough-legged Hawk. Nocturnal raptors on display were Barn Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, Barred Owl and Eurasian Eagle Owl. Another bird was a one eyed Common Raven. Bobby also explained to the audience the background of several other rescues in their charge - a Striped Skull, a blind Opossum, a Kinkajou and a young Fennec Fox.

Francois Portmann has some really great photos of the birds on his website here.
