One of Auburn’s most popular fall programs — the Auburn University Raptor Center’s Football, Fans and Feathers — offers fans the opportunity to see a raptor show where they will experience birds of prey eye-to-eye and watch as they swoop overhead.

During the show, hawks, falcons, eagles and other birds of prey are free-flown from towers and around the amphitheater, enabling visitors to see these raptors flying close. Visitors will also learn interesting facts about natural history, conservation, and rehabilitation. This educational presentation is appropriate for all ages. Each show is unique and features a variety of different raptor species! All birds used in the programs are permanent residents that are non-releasable due to prior injuries or human imprinting. The Auburn Raptor Center is a division of the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Shows will be held at 4 p.m. the Friday before Auburn home games. Tickets can be purchased in advance HERE; there is no charge for children age three and under. This is a cash free event. Only checks or cards can be accepted.

The hour-long program is presented at the center’s the 350-seat Edgar B. Carter Educational Amphitheater, located at 1350 Pratt-Carden Drive off Shug Jordan Parkway. Gates open one hour prior to the start of the presentation.
