Due to health concerns, this event is canceled.

It is with utmost concern for the health and safety of the community that we have decided to cancel Birds of Prey Day 2020. 

Celebrating nature, animals, and the magnificence of birds of prey, in particular have been at the core of this event since its inception 28 years ago. We cannot express enough gratitude to the falconers, wildlife rehabilitators, animal experts and friends who generously share their time and knowledge year after year. To our sponsors, who commit funds because they understand the value of educational community events, thank you. We remain indebted to you, the community, for not only attending this event but for supporting Green Chimneys children and animals, too.

We look forward to Birds of Prey Day 2021.

Celebrating 28 years of Green Chimneys’ famous annual tradition dedicated to children, the environment and magnificent birds of prey.

  • Over 100 raptors
  • Free-flying demos
  • Top wildlife experts
  • Live animal presentations

Green Chimneys’ renowned Farm & Wildlife Center is home to nearly 200 animals, including 50 birds of prey. An Andean condor; Griffon vulture; numerous hawks, falcons, owls and several crows are under the care of expert wildlife staff. Spring always brings large numbers of fledgling birds that need care, and the goal is to return them to the wild as soon as possible.
The students of the Green Chimneys School have some special needs of their own and through the rehabilitation and care of these animals, they learn compassion, encouragement, and the true meaning of stewardship.

Enjoy live demonstrations from leading wildlife and environmental experts, including:

  • Jim Eyring, Pace University Environmental Center
  • Bill Robinson, Wildlife Lectures
  • Jonathan Wood, The Raptor Project
  • Brian Bradley, Skyhunters in Flight
  • Bruce Lowder, Animal Encounters
  • The New York State Falconry Association
  • Lauren McGough, Falconer & Anthropologist
  • Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures
  • Erik Callender Reptile Edventures
  • Two By Two Zoo
