The UMass Amherst Libraries will host Tom Ricardi of the Massachusetts Birds of Prey Rehab Facility in Conway, Mass for an interactive presentation featuring live birds of prey. Among the raptors featured will be a Golden Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Red-Tailed Hawk, Harris Hawk, Kestrel, Screech Owl, Great Horned Owl, and Eurasian Eagle Owl. The event is free and open to the public.

A retired Fish and Wildlife game warden and licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Ricardi cares for injured birds, operates a successful captive-breeding program, and travels throughout New England and New York providing information aimed at helping people appreciate, respect, and assist in the conservation of these important raptors.

This event is a must for anyone who enjoys watching the Peregrine falcons atop the Du Bois Library.
