Fly Up to Derby Hill Bird Observatory for the 2014 Onondaga Audubon Bird FestivalPosted on Feb 12, 2014
Bring your family and friends for a fun day all about birds and nature, May 10, 2014. Live hawks, bird walks, nature activities, and kids’ face painting are scheduled throughout the day. You can help monitor a Bluebird trail or talk with bird experts about birds, bird behavior, and migration. You can see live hawks and owls and hear a talk about the fascinating world of raptors. A silent auction will offer bird and non-bird items, and there will be vendors with wildlife photography, native plants, artwork, and handcrafted jewelry for sale. In addition, the popular Chomppers Smokin’ Barbeque will be on hand with their tantalizing fare. And, of course, the star performers—eagles, hawks, vultures, and other wild birds—will be flying overhead.
