Live birds of prey at Sherwood Island Nature Center

Wildlife rehabilitators will present a "Live Birds of Prey" program 2 p.m. Sunday in a field outside the Sherwood Island Nature Center at Sherwood Island State Park.

Todd Secki and Christine Cummings-Secki, founders of A Place Called Hope, a raptor rehabilitation and education center specialized in the rescue and care of Connecticut's birds of prey, will show some raptors and share each bird's story of survival. During a segment devoted to our environment, they will offer simple tips on how to help lessen conflicts with wildlife.

Sponsored by the Friends of Sherwood Island State Park, the program is free. Usual parking fees apply.

The nature center, located between the East Beach and the salt marsh nature trail, was built by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with the Friends of Sherwood Island.

It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays.
