Come visit Sullivan, a golden eagle, and many other magnificent birds of prey at the California Raptor Center on Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Special presentations will be given at 10 a.m. and noon, and visitors also are invited to join the Hawk Walk, which starts at 8 a.m. at the center’s gates (bring binoculars). Cameras are welcome, but no flash, please.

The presentations will demonstrate features of raptor biology and ecology, and visitors will be able to see many raptors that cannot be released back to the wild, as well as birds out on the glove.

Representatives of Hawley Winery, a Sonoma County vineyard, will offer wine tasting (no sales) and Mendocino Brewing Company will have beers for sampling. The center’s museum will be open, and T-shirts and other CRC souvenirs will be available for purchase.

While the open house is free, tax-deductible donations are welcome to help provide care and feeding of resident raptors, underwrite education programs, provide medication and medical supplies for rehabilitation, and maintain the center.

To reach the Raptor Center, take the UC Davis exit from Interstate 80 and turn south on Old Davis Road, away from the main campus. Cross the railroad tracks and continue to the Putah Creek Bridge where there is a low-profile blue and gold California Raptor Center sign.

Do not cross the bridge. Instead, turn left onto the paved levee road and follow it for one block until it dips down off the levee. Turn right into the CRC parking lot. Parking is free. Do not use GPS: It directs you to the wrong place.
