Birds of Prey from All Angles

Thursday, November 29

Tickets free but reservations are required.


Join us to hear Bob Gordon, MD, share his new, informative, and enjoyable talk, “Birds of Prey from All Angles,” on Thursday, November 29 at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor and Interpretive Center.

Bob, a retired physician, has published many scientific papers including “The Use of Canines in the Detection of Human Cancers.” In retirement, Bob’s interest in and involvement with raptors has grown, and includes assisting with raptor rehabilitation for Project Wildlife. Bob regularly presents educational talks and demonstrations at Mission Trails, The Nat, and the San Diego Zoo. In the last five years, his experiences as a licensed falconer has added a new dimension to his thinking about conservation and nature’s preservation.

At his talk, Bob will be looking at birds differently, not only spatially but also figuratively. New information will include the latest on bird evolution, classification, natural and human threats, as well as the practice of falconry. This program is geared for all nature lovers, even those who have little to no knowledge of raptors.

Huxley, Bob’s Harris’s Hawk and frequent companion, will be the moderator for the Q & A following the lecture. You will be can ask Huxley about his abatement experiences.

Bob and Huxley don’t require “even a Mc-mouse” as thanks for their presentation, but encourage attendees to make a donation to the Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation to support its mission and help protect Mission Trails.
