Birds of Prey on Display

Egg Hunts at Webb Mountain Discovery Zone were followed by live bird shows.

The Connecticut Audubon Society in Fairfield rehabilitates injured birds and releases them back into the wild. Birds like Phantom, the Peregrine Falcon who was electricuted on a power line.

Deb Galasso of the Audubon Society showed off Phantom to families attending a live bird show at Webb Mountain Discovery Zone Saturday.

Peregrine Falcons can fly up to 273 mph and they prefer to eat smaller birds, according to Galasso.

Two other "birds of prey" featured in the show were Bella the Broadwing Hawk and Lucy the Barred Owl.
