Bringing People and Nature Together


Richard Crossley, Nancy and Jim Carpenter

Last week Nancy and I, along with our staff at the Wild Birds Unlimited of Indianapolis store, were honored to co-host a fund raiser for the Birds of Prey program at the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center. For a donation, attendees enjoyed a raptor identification program and hike with the acclaimed birder Richard Crossley. Richard Crossley is an internationally acclaimed birder, award winning author and photographer. Attendees also received their choice of Crossley’s Guide to Raptors or Crossley’s Guide to Eastern Birds. We raised $1,500 for the program.

Richard also gave a presentation and had a book signing at the Wild Birds Unlimited store on 82nd. St. in Indianapolis. As you can see in the photos, everyone had a wonderful time.
