Birds of Prey on Display

August 23 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

FREE

Take a stroll through the Mew Viewing Area, where bird handlers are on hand to allow patrons an up-close look at these fascinating birds.

Birds are set up either in their enclosures or outside the enclosure on the glove of a handler. Visitors are free to walk up to our handlers. For the safety of the birds and humans, viewers are spaced six feet apart in small group clusters. Physical distancing is standard procedure with the birds. Masks are required when within six feet of another visitor.

Hoffman Estates Park District and the Wings and Talons organization are teaming up to bring exciting live raptor educational programming opportunities to Vogelei Park. Wings and Talons is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization that cares for non-releasable birds of prey. Our mission is to provide for the Raptors in our care, and those that live in the wild, by means of education, stewardship, and conservation. Many of the birds of prey are on display in the specially built mews at Vogelei Park, near Safety Town. For educational program opportunities email  info@WingsAndTalons.org
