Indoor Program – Nick Tiberio – History of Falconry

February 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Nick Tiberio is the Director of Aviculture at the Livingston Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy (LRWC). Nick has over 15 years of professional experience working with avian species, and manages the LRWC flock. In addition to breeding and raising endangered waterfowl species, Nick is a Master Falconer and has worked with a number of birds of prey. Prior to joining the Conservancy, Nick worked as a professional abatement falconer in New York, training and flying a team of abatement falcons to deter pest birds from landfill grounds—an environmentally-friendly approach to pest control. Nick will be speaking on the ancient art of falconry from its early beginnings, to its modern day practice throughout the World.  His talk will include live falconry raptors, along with tools and equipment used in the sport.
