The 2015 Onondaga Audubon Bird Festival was held Saturday, May 9th at Derby Hill, Mexico, NY.
"Bird watching, nature walks, and kids’ activities are scheduled throughout the day. Experts will be on hand to answer your questions about birds, bird behavior, and bird migration. You can get up close and personal with Rick West’s live hawks and owls and learn all about the fascinating world of raptors.
There will be educational exhibits as well as booths with hand-crafted walking sticks, bird feeders, maple products, wildlife photography, artwork, and other items for sale. You can also take a chance in our prize drawing and enjoy some of the tantalizing fare offered by Chomppers Smokin’ Barbeque. And, of course, the star performers—eagles, hawks, vultures, and other wild birds—will be flying overhead."
