As these birds of prey enter their hunting season, like professional athletes, they reach peak physical condition enabling them to catch meals. David Stives from the Placerita Canyon Nature Center, will introduce his wide array of live birds, the fascinating world of falconry and how it relates to rehabilitation of wildlife. If we are lucky, the birds may make a fly-over appearance to showcase their beauty and grace closer than ever before.
