North Fork Audubon Presents
A Dove Demonstration at Salt Air Farm
Saturday January 20, 2018. 11 am
 
Join Prudence Heston of  Salt Air Farm in Cutchogue on January 20th(rain/snow date 1/27) at 11 am for a demonstration and talk on doves bred and raised for event releases.  These birds are a hybrid cross between a rock dove and a racing pigeon giving them the good looks of the dove with the homing ability of a well bred racing pigeon.  Originally imported from top breeders in Belgium they gracefully walk the line between a domesticated bird and a wild bird making them both fun to work with and fascinating to observe.
 
Salt Air at farm is located at 1535 New Suffolk Rd. in Cutchogue.  Please use bathroom facilities prior to arrival as no facilities are available on site.  And, remember to dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear (boots are recommended) as this encounter will take place entirely outdoors.  We look forward to your visit! 
For info: call 516-526-9095 or info@northforkaudubon.org
