  • The Delaware Valley Raptor Center regularly posts photos of the area's magnificent raptors on its Facebook page, including this photo of a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) posted on Aug. 13. Our national bird, the bald eagle is the only eagle unique to North America.



— Many birds of prey can be seen from a distance, flying in the air or hanging out in a nearby tree. Have you ever wanted to see an owl or eagle up close? Here’s your chance, as Belle Reve Senior Living invites senior citizens to “Close Encounters with Birds of Prey” on Monday, Aug. 25, at 1 p.m.

Get up close and personal with some majestic birds of prey when the Delaware Valley Raptor Center brings five raptors to Belle Reve: a hawk, a falcon, two owls and an eagle. This educational program introduces the audience to the world of raptors to create an understanding, respect and appreciation for not only the raptors, but also all wildlife.

This event is free and open to seniors. Seating is limited. RSVP by Aug. 22 by calling Kaitlyn or Michele at 570-409-9191.

The Delaware Valley Raptor Center is a private, not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey. Their goal is to provide professional care for orphaned, ill and injured raptors so they can be returned to the wild. Through educational programs, the center aims to create an appreciation for all wildlife. For more information, visit www.dvrconline.org.
