    The Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ is a non-profit organization and one of the premier wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. The Trust includes a hospital with state-of-the-art medical facilities, quality exterior housing for several hundred birds, and an education building. A stalwart advocate for birds of prey for three decades, it is now recognized as a national leader in the fields of raptor conservation and avian rehabilitation.

    Meet up with Michael Downey at The Raptor Trust for an exciting day of photographing some of the Trust's permament bird residents! The day will begin with a brief photography seminar with Michael. You'll then have a chance to photograph at least three different kinds of birds, which may include owls, hawks, and falcons. Indoors, there will be a station set up with a backdrop and continuous lighting. Outdoors, there will be two shooting stations with perches: one against a large pine tree, and one with an open field as the backdrop.

    *Limited to 10 attendees.
    *Meetup is at the Raptor Trust Visitor Parking area (1452 White Bridge Road, Millington, NJ 07946).

    *IMPORTANT: Please be aware that this workshop is weather dependent for the safety of the birds. If there is rain or too much wind in the forecast, we will need to postpone the workshop. Please keep an eye on this listing and your email.
