Wind Over Wings at Coastal Senior College

Apr 28, 2014
A golden eagle will be among the wild birds exhibited in a presentation by Wind Over Wings Tuesday, May 20 at University College at Rockland.

Rockland — Coastal Senior College will sponsor Wind Over Wings, who will bring four live, wild birds to Room 405 at University College at Rockland Tuesday, May 20, at 2 p.m.

These birds range from among the largest to near the smallest of Maine's raptors. The birds are scheduled to be a golden Eagle (an occasional visitor to Maine), and three Maine natives: a Red-tailed Hawk, a Raven and a Northern Saw-whet Owl. Each of these birds has been found injured and, despite excellent veterinary care, will never be able to survive in the wild. The state has given permission for them to be used in educational programs such as this one.

Wind Over Wings, based in Dresden, is a nonprofit educational service featuring magnificent birds who are unable to survive in their natural environment and who have overcome extraordinary obstacles in their lives. Each bird is an individual and each has a story. All of the birds in their care have permanent injuries that would prevent them from taking care of themselves if released back to the wild.

This one hour program is free to college members and to the public. No reservations are required.
