Raving about Raptors

Did you know that kettles rise on warm updrafts? They do. Of course these kettles are groups of Red-tailed or Broad-winged Hawks or other raptors rising up on the warm updrafts to save energy as they migrate over long expanses such as one of the Great Lakes. Kathy Bricker and her husband, Jim, will come with some of their excitement of watching these kettles rise at the Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch. Much of the presentation will center on their work studying the hawks and owls and their adaptations to the top-of-the-food-chain lifestyle. The program starts at 7:30 PM and is preceded by a social time with light refreshments at 7:00 PM. Guests and the general public are encouraged to attend. Handicap parking and access is at either the front or rear entrance of the building.
