Birds of Prey Day – CANCELED

Sunday, June 5, 2022
10:00am - 4:00pm

Green Chimneys Brewster Campus
400 Doansburg Road, Brewster, NY 10509

As the avian flu outbreak continues to spread, impacting domestic and wild bird populations across the country, Green Chimneys has made the decision to cancel Birds of Prey Day this June. As an event that draws birds and handlers from across the tri-state area, we must remain focused on the welfare of the many birds and animals living on our campuses, as well as the health and safety of all those who visit.

Although the virus is determined to be relatively low-risk to humans, we are following recommendations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Bronx Zoo, and colleagues in the field of animal care, to protect our students, staff, and of course, our animal partners. We thank you for your support.

If you have already purchased tickets to the event or are signed on as a vendor, you will be contacted by Green Chimneys staff regarding a refund.


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
  • Hay rides
  • Zip line and more!

Green Chimneys’ renowned Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 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:

  • James Eyring, Pace University Environmental Center
  • Bill Robinson, Wildlife Lectures
  • Brian Bradley, Skyhunters in Flight
  • Bruce Lowder, Animal Encounters
  • The New York State Falconry Association
  • Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures
  • Erik Callender Reptile Edventures
  • Two by Two Zoo
  • New this year: K-9 demos by Lewisboro Police Dept. and Putnam County Sheriff’s Dept.
  • Celebrity Guests
