Bringing People and Nature Together

Richard Crossley and the Carpenters

Richard Crossley, Nancy and Jim Carpenter

Here at Wild Birds Unlimited, we are all about bringing people and nature together. Last week Nancy and I, along with our staff at the Wild Birds Unlimited of Indianapolis store, were honored to co-host a fundraiser 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 are pleased to say that we raised $1,500 for the Birds of Prey 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.

Visit your local WBU store to learn more about how you can help the birds of prey in your area.
