Audubon President Giving Eagle Presentation

- Most of us know that the Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States and is pictured on our national emblem.

But not everyone knows that there is a Bald Eagle you can visit in Chautauqua County.

On Monday, April 7, Jamestown Audubon President Ruth Lundin will give a presentation about eagles at the Hazeltine Library in Busti.

Lundin’s 7 p.m. presentation will highlight Liberty, the non-releasable Bald Eagle that lives in her own outdoor habitat at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary. Lundin will share the story of the effort of many volunteers to prepare for providing a home to an eagle that could not survive in the wild on its own. She will also speak about the great attraction Liberty has been for Audubon visitors.

The talk is free and open to the public.

The Hazeltine Library is located at the five corners in Busti; the address is 891 Busti-Sugar Grove Road, Jamestown, New York.

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. The Nature Center building and Blue Heron Gift Shop are open 10 a.m-4:30 p.m., Monday-Saturday, and 1-4:30 on Sundays. Visitors can walk the trails and view Liberty in her enclosure behind the Center from dawn to dusk daily.
