Description

The Delaware Valley Raptor Center gave a presentation at Duke Farms about their raptors.

It was an excellent talk, but the speaker was a little overshadowed by the live raptors he brought with him.

All the raptors had some reason for being in captivity, whether it was injury or that they had lost fear of humans.
