Braddock Bay Raptor Research was hosting their annual Bird-of-Prey Days at the Braddock Bay Park Pavilion, and they sent dozens of people our way!  58 people visited the station today, including 9 students and 1 professor from Mansfield University in Pennsylvania.  We had just enough birds to show off to our guests without having to rush, and everyone seemed to enjoy the up-close-and-personal views of birds you usually only see from afar.
