  Marian Goldstine brought her macaw Petie.

Marian and Petie
  Petie not only has vibrant color but also a lot of personality.

  Karl Striedieck is a longtime State College falconer. Although Karl didn't keep a hawk this year, he borrowed a red-tailed hawk from a friend for WAA.

The point of Karl's falconry is to keep an immature red-tailed hawk over winter, teach it to hunt, and then release the hawk in the spring.

Following is an outdoor photograph from the previous winter: Zoey the red-tailed hawk is returning to Karl's lure.
