OspreyFest launches Friday

-A A +A

From a Press Release

Raptor lovers from New Mexico and surrounding states are preparing for the annual trek to OspreyFest at Heron Lake State Park in north central New Mexico, scheduled this year for Friday-Sunday.
The fledge of osprey chicks resulting from the return of more than 20 nesting pairs of osprey to Heron and El Vado Lakes is cause for celebration, with parks’ visitors treated to a a bird’s eye view of flight training from vantage points in campgrounds and along the park roads.
OspreyFest kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday at the Heron Lake State Park Visitor Center with live uncaged raptors meeting bird and nature lovers of all ages, at the combination welcome reception and birthday party.
The feathered guest of honor is Electra, a five-year-old female osprey rescued by NORA, from a burnt power pole in Tierra Amarilla in 2006. Electra was rehabilitated by The Wildlife Center of Española and has been a crowd-pleaser ever since. This event is a fundraiser and tickets for attendees 12 years and older are $25 per person, available at the door.
The Saturday program includes exhibitors, demonstration booths, guided nature walks, fee workshops on digital photography and birdhouse building and a storytelling session for the very young at heart.
