Sandstone, WV  – Here’s a chance to meet some West Virginia raptor birds – at least six of them — up close and personal from the world-renowned Three Rivers Avian Center (TRAC) in Brooks (Summers County) WV in a Raptor Rendezvous.

TRAC’s Wendy and Ron Perrone will be showing the birds beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, 2006 in the auditorium of the National Park Service’s Sandstone Visitors Center at Exit 139 (Hinton-Sandstone) of I-64.

Featured will be Perry the peregrine falcon, Spirit the golden eagle, Twister the barn owl, Hoolie the great horned owl, Apex the American kestrel and Nick the red-tailed hawk.

The NPS says: “Bring your camera. Bring your family and friends. Come and meet these special birds up close in a fun-filled and instructive program…free and open to the public.” For more information call the visitor zcenter at (304) 466-0417.
