raptor weekend 2011 in rhode island

It was another awesome Raptor Weekend in celebration of birds of prey, thanks to the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, featuring presentations by Talons, Eyes on Owls and more. It seemed like a big turnout this year too — beautiful weather and lot of adorably enthusiastic kids eager to learn about raptors. I met a lot of nice people and took a bunch of good pictures.

Yep, that’s me in the eye of Big Momma, the Eurasian Eagle Owl:

ASRI’s Environmental Education Center has many great exhibits including this rare blue lobster standing next to the empty shell it shed the day before.
