Enjoy Wildlife Photography At Tuckahoe State Park’s Birds Of Prey Photo Shoot
Queen Anne, Md. — Plan a trip to Caroline County on Saturday, May 10, for a lovely spring morning photographing the wild birds of Tuckahoe State Park’s renowned Scales & Tales program. The park’s Birds of Prey Photo Shoot will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Cherry Lane Campground and will feature hawks, a falcon, owls and a very special guest – a visiting bald eagle – all set in their natural surroundings.
An environmental education program of the Maryland Park Service, Scales & Tales uses live, non-releasable birds of prey and reptiles, mostly native to Maryland, to promote stewardship of our wildlife and other natural resources. Through the stories or "tales" of how these animals came into the care of the program, Scales & Tales naturalists tackle important environmental issues such as loss of habitat, environmental pollution, resource management and biodiversity.
While spectators are free, there is a $10 charge per photographer, which will support Tuckahoe’s Scales & Tales program. For more information about the Birds of Prey Photo Shoot or for directions to Tuckahoe State Park, contact the park office at 410-820-1668.
