From the NYC Parks Department website:
Join NYC Parks at Raptor Fest hosted by the Urban Park Rangers. The event is free to the public and will include live demonstrations, a raptor viewing area, and education/activity tables. Activities are provided by the Urban Park Rangers; and live birds of prey are provided by Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation.
This event is a great way for kids to learn about birds of prey, while getting up close and personal with them. There will be birds on display, including falcons, hawks, and owls.

The event will be from 12:00-3:00pm and is a great opportunity to see a lot of cool birds close up and in action.
