FHHL Speaker Kimball Brought Raptors

August 26th, 2016 · No Comments


Nancy Kimball, wildlife rehabilitator, holds an owl on Thursday at the Mountain Grove Memorial Church as part of the Friends of Historic Huletts Landing Summer Lecture Series.

Those who attended the Friends of Historic Huletts Landing Lecture entitled: Meet the Raptors by wildlife rehabilitator, Nancy Kimball, were treated to a great program. About 45 attended, about half children scrambling for front row seats. Ms. Kimball gave very informative talk which included three raptors she brought with her.

Lots of discussion of frozen mice, which she buys by the hundred to rehabilitate injured birds and animals which she nurses back to health. A sample of an ex-mouse bone and fur-ball choked up, was passed around (in a little box) – not everyone would touch the box. She does this as a labor of love. She received lots of questions and she and the birds received a big round of applause!
