Wingmasters School Visit

Updated: Mar 12



"WINGMASTERS is a partnership of two people dedicated to increasing public understanding and appreciation of North American birds of prey. Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks are both licensed raptor rehabilitators based in Massachusetts. Together they care for injured birds of prey. Most of the birds they rehabilitate can ultimately be released back into the wild, but in some cases the birds are left permanently handicapped. Julie and Jim are further licensed to provide a home for these nonreleasable raptors, and to use them for educational programs. Since 1994 WINGMASTERS has presented over 5000 programs at schools, libraries and museums throughout New England" (http://wingmasters.net/).



Students at RCS were able to participate in this program today. The presenter educated our students about these birds of prey and she brought 5 with her to share with the students: An American Kestrel, a Peregrine Falcon, a Red-Tailed Hawk, a Horned Owl, a Barn Owl and a Saw-Whet Owl.
