About seventy-five people were on hand for yesterday’s presentation by Bill Streeter, Director of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center. Bill has over thirty years of experience working with raptors. His Center rehabilitates injured birds of prey for re-release to the wild. Birds whose injuries prevent them from surviving in the wild become permanent residents at the Center and part of its education program.

Both entertaining and informative, Bill introduced the audience to six live raptors: American Kestrel, Peregrine Falcon, Red-tailed Hawk, Long-eared Owl, Saw-whet Owl and a majestic Golden Eagle. Participants got close-up looks as Bill circulated through the audience with each bird.
