LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — On Saturday, September 21, Morgan Outdoors will host a photography exhibit titled “Raptors through the Lens,” by local photographer Jerry Cohen, at 46 Main Street. The theme of the exhibit, which runs through October 14, is birds of prey—hawks, eagles, owls, osprey and falcons.
The exhibition coincides with Livingston Manor’s second annual Bird of Prey Day on Saturday, September 21 at the Livingston Manor Central School grounds, where the public is invited to get close to these wild and powerful birds of prey throughout the day. Morgan Outdoors will open early, at 9:30 a.m. that day, so those coming to town for the 10 a.m. appearance of a live owl on Main Street, can enjoy the exhibition too.
Most of the photographs were taken in Sullivan County. “Raptors—hawks, eagles, owls, osprey and falcons_are just about everywhere, although not always easy to find,” said Cohen. “Eagles migrate here in the winter months to escape the freezing waters of Canada. One of the largest migrations is to the Rio and Mongaup Reservoir system in and near Forestburgh, where they find open water to feed all winter. Other great spots in the county include all throughout the Delaware River corridor, the Bashakill, and the Neversink Reservoir.”
The limited edition framed prints in “Raptors though the Lens” will be offered for sale during the exhibition. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Delaware Valley Raptor Center, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and conservation of birds of prey.
