Central Florida is home to some of the most beautiful birds of prey in the world, including the intrepid bald eagle and osprey.

If you would like to learn more about these birds, join local author Marcia Meara for a slide presentation from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd.

Meara will discuss nesting habits, habitat and diet and will offer tips on identifying mature and sub-adult birds. A Q-and-A session will follow her presentation, which is part of DeBary Hall’s Fabulous Wildlife Series.

Reservations are not required. For more information, contact Tracy Mestre at 386-668-3840 or tmestre@volusia.org.
