Dale Kernahan, with the non-profit educational organization ‘Wings to Soar’, holds a bird of prey during the group’s presentation at Franklin Junior High School last Friday. John Stokes, below, also with ‘Wings to Soar’ presented an owl. The event featured a wide variety of birds that cannot be released back into the wild for medical reasons and are thus presented to groups across the country to raise awareness of birds of prey. The presentations were made in parish schools in conjunction with last weekend’s Eagle Expo.
