Learn the ways of the bird

Posted

Birds of prey took center stage at South Platte Park in Littleton on Feb. 24 at what may be the final presentation at the park by Wild Wings Environmental Education, a nonprofit organization that spreads the word about wild birds. Director Deanna Curtis will be migrating south in coming weeks to become the full-time falconer at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.

Curtis presented several birds to the folks who flocked to the nature center, including a peregrine falcon, a great horned owl, a red-tailed hawk and an eastern screech owl.

Birds face a lot of threats in the big city, Curtis said, but people can help them out. A simple way? Pick up old fishing line along riverbanks — birds can get tangled up in it.
