Boston We're Here!

So long to the cast and crew of the Masters of flight; birds of prey show.

They shoved off from WBS the last week of March in search of greener pastures at the Stone Zoo in the Boston area. 

The previous several weeks had involved not only packing up personal belongings, but also preparing the birds for their long trip. 
 We're on the road again! 
The stars of the show (the birds) and their supporting cast (the staff) have started their show season a little early this year--the first weekend of May.  Usually our shows run from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but this year we will have an extended season.

Unless you plan to visit the Stone Zoo in Stoneham, MA (right outside Boston) this summer, this is the last time you will see many of these birds until fall.  So, meet the cast.

Greeting you, and handing you a program, will be one of our official "Greeters": 

Gomer, a Military Macaw
McCoy, a Green Winged Macaw, or

Waylon, a Blue and Gold Macaw.

Stars and Cast members will include:

Marz- a Red- tailed Hawk, 

Sam- an Auger Buzzard

Jack- a young Harris Hawk 

Osiris- an Egyptian Vulture and one of our veteran performers

Baton Rouge- King Vulture 

Otis- Abdim Stork 

Buddy- Double Yellow Headed Amazon Parrot 

Rio- Green Wing Macaw

Riley- Barn Owl 
Detour- American Kestrel 

Cherry, the Pied Crow

McGwire- the Bald Eagle 

and finally, Hugnin- White-Naped Raven 

And of course, a generous thank you to our comedy relief cast who make appearances throughout the show, Black, Brown, Yellow (Cochin chickens), as well as Moose and Squirrel (‘Fancy’ Rats.)

So if you live in, or are planning to visit, the Boston area this summer, be sure to catch our cast of characters as they entertain the crowds at Stone Zoo in Stoneham, Massachusetts (just north of Boston).  Performances are at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm every day.  We promise to keep you entertained (and you may even pick up a few nuggets of knowledge in the process).
