Birds in Concert Coming Soon

Get ready to rock with the raptors and “The Raptor Project” every Thursday night in August at 7 pm.  Where else but WBS could you enjoy free family entertainment that includes not only a concert, but live birds of prey and other animals?

Every performance features WBS’ in house band “The Raptor Project” which is made up of staff members and faithful volunteers.  They will be playing songs from both of their popular children’s albums “Save the Future” and their latest release “All Along the Watershed”.  Sing along with us to favorites such as "Turkey Named Fred", "Roadkill Shiver," "What's the Matter," "The Greatest Possum," and "Animal Noises."

The band has already begun rehearsing, and is working on a couple of new songs!  Their environmentally friendly and educational tunes have been written primarily by our own staff members, Joe Hoffmann and Roger Holloway, both of whom run our Wildlife Hospital.

Most concerts will have special guest artists that you won’t want to miss.  Every concert will feature live birds of prey that will fly just inches over your head.  You may see a bird parade, a snake parade, a bald eagle or even a dancing Dodo bird.  During some of our songs kids will be invited on stage to shake a tail feather.

All performances begin at 7:00 pm.  The concert schedule is as follows:

August 1 – Babaloo followed by The Raptor Project
August 8 – The Raptor Project performs songs from their CD’s “All Along the Watershed” and “Save the Future”
August 15 – The Raptor Project followed by The Reserve, featuring Javier Mendoza & Jim Peters
August 22 – The Raptor Project followed by Fowl Play
August 29 – The Raptor Project followed by The Rebounds
