in Shenandoah National Park
Look Up! Birds of Prey.
Meet live raptors and learn more about their vital role in the ecosystem. Held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesdays at the Big Meadows Amphitheater. 30 minutes in the picnic grounds area.
If you want to see the birds of prey in their natural habitat, ask park rangers to suggest trails to mountaintops where the peregrines nest. Then watch the young ones fly at incredibly high speed as they perform astounding acrobatics. You’ll be amazed – even awed – as you watch peregrine siblings play, gripping their talons together and tumbling through the air.
