Looking for our Red-tailed Hawks, Finn and Atlanta at the Nature Center and Aquarium? Don't worry, they are still with the Audubon Society of Rhode Island! After three years of being on public display, we are now letting our Ravens take the stage. You can still see these beautiful hawks at one of our many Audubon raptor programs offered throughout the year.

Our Common Ravens Zach and Lucy are now living in the display cage behind the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol, RI. Zach and Lucy are very social birds and love to see people. Visit them soon!

This move took place on Wednesday, September 25th and all the birds seem very content in their new homes.

Please stop by to see Zach and Lucy and be sure on the lookout for Finn and Atlanta at an upcoming Audubon program.
