    See live birds of prey in action as their handlers interpret their behaviour. See them dive, soar and, on occasion, go off to explore the local sights. Visitors will have opportunities to see the birds eye-to-eye, score some close-up photos and gain insight into the challenges these birds face in the wild.

    Flight demonstrations take place at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L.) will present a talk at 12:30 p.m., while David Hancock from the Hancock Wildlife Foundation will deliver a presentation, "Eagles Adapting to the Urban Environment" at 2:30 p.m.
