New England's Largest Celebration of Birds of Prey
They are coming! Amazing birds of prey with long sharp talons, hooked beaks, and highly developed eyesight and hearing are descending upon Audubon this fall. They’re raptors, the superior hunters of the avian world. Many species of these formidable and striking birds will be at the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol, Rhode Island on September 9 and 10, 2023 from 10 AM - 4 PM for Raptor Weekend 2023.
Eagles, owls, hawks and falcons will be featured in live presentations, educational programs and activities for bird enthusiasts of all ages. Audubon presents a unique opportunity for visitors to get up-close with many species and learn about raptors and their adaptations in this engaging, family-friendly weekend event.
