Albany -- It was weekend filled with high flying adventures for visitors to the Parks at Chehaw.

Albany's legendary Jim Fowler was on hand Saturday and Sunday at Chehaw showcasing the Birds of Prey for visitors of all ages.

"What we're trying to do is get people interested in everything existing in the natural world. That's the mission of Chehaw, that we connect family and kids with the world of nature. Hopefully some of the kids that came out here today can get a real close up view of some of these spectacular birds of prey," said Fowler. 

The crowds were treated to rare and exciting bird encounters featuring an owl, barberry falcon, harris hawk, and a red tail hawk. Some very lucky youngsters even got up close and personal with a literal bird's eye view.
