Southeastern Raptor Center

You don't have to be a bird enthusiast to enjoy learning about birds of prey at Auburn University's Southeastern Raptor Center. In addition to hundreds of shows throughout the state and region each year, the center's educational unit staff conducts programs at the Edgar B. Carter Amphitheatre each Friday before Auburn football games. The program, known as Football, Fans and Feathers, features hawks, falcons and eagles free-flown from flight towers, enabling guests to see the raptors up close. It begins at 4 p.m., and admission is $5 (payable on arrival). Although the center is not open to the public except for these special presentation dates, groups can schedule a program by calling (334) 844-6943.
