Raptor Fest 2022

A favorite annual event, Raptor Fest took place this last weekend in Prospect Park. Thank you to the NYC Urban Park Rangers who brought in falconer, Mike Dupuy, who shared several of his birds with a happy crowd of admirers.

One of the featured raptors was this female Gyrfalcon-Saker Falcon hybrid.
