Did you ever wonder how birds fly or how airplanes get off the ground?  This is your chance to find out!  This Saturday, January 26, at 1:00 pm Wind Over Wings will bring four birds of prey to the Owls Head Transportation Museum to discuss the magic of flight as part of the Museum’s FREE Winter Education Series.

Wind Over Wings is a non-profit, wildlife educational center featuring magnificent birds who are unable to survive in their natural environment.  Saturday’s “Feathers & Flight” presentation will include a large owl to demonstrate silent flight when she flaps her wings; a kestrel who is a falcon, among the fastest creatures on earth; a Red-tailed Hawk to show beautiful feathers; and a Saw-whet Owl who had flown into a window.  Each bird is an individual and each has a story so join us as we learn how wind over wings allows for the magic of flight in both birds and planes!

“Feathers & Flight” is the second in a series of seven winter education programs to be offered by the Owls Head Transportation Museum.  All programs begin at 1 p.m. with the exception of the Introduction to Metal Shaping on February 23rd.  Programs are free to the public, thanks to the support of the Museum’s Lang Education Center and your donations.
