Raptors from the Birds of Prey Rehabilitation Center
The Keep Homestead Museum welcomes Tom Ricardi of the Birds of Prey Rehabilitation Center in Conway on Sunday, November 6 from 1:30–3:30 pm.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the injured bird laying on the side of the road? Well, often Tom Ricardi is called. Mr. Ricardi cares for dozens of falcons, owls, eagles, and other raptors that have been injured in some way.
He does a lot of work with local animal control and the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife and rescues an average of 125–150 birds a year. Birds that are rehabilitated, recover and are able to fly are released back into the wild. Those that are permanently disabled remain at the Center for the rest of their lives. Some of these birds are part of his traveling educational programs.
Come meet Tom Ricardi and find out more.
The museum will be open for viewing and admission is free, however donations are always gratefully accepted.
