Birds of prey displayed Saturday at Ridges

The Open Door Bird Sanctuary brought four feathered friends to The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor Saturday. The presentation centered on birds of prey including local species you can't normally get close to according to Ridges Program Manager Katie Krouse.


Another local bird of prey displayed was a kestrel falcon. The Open Door Bird Sanctuary is a 34-acre preserve near Jacksonport that is open to visitors on Saturday afternoons from late June to Labor Day. For the rest of the year their ambassadors coordinate various presentations. Birds of prey are currently experiencing a renaissance with recovering populations.
