Meet wildlife photographer Peter Green outdoors at Mount Pleasant Library for a talk about his work documenting birds of prey in Providence!

Meet wildlife photographer Peter Green outdoors at Mount Pleasant Library for a talk about his work as he documents the Peregrine Falcons, Red-tailed Hawks, American Kestrels, and other raptor species that live and thrive in downtown Providence! Get free tickets through Eventbrite. The RAIN DATE is Wednesday, September 15th at 6pm.

The Barred Owl hunting rodents downtown did not escape from a zoo, the Peregrine Falcons were not dispatched by the government to reduce the pigeon population, and the Bald Eagles soaring over the skyline are not lost while migrating to Alaska. Wild predatory raptors have adapted to urban environments and are perfectly at home on structures of brick and steel. This talk will reveal how stealthy birds of prey live in the city, and provides tips you can follow to help urban raptors survive.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Peter Green is a graphic designer and photographer residing in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. He bikes the small city, documenting Peregrine Falcons and other urban raptors from Red-tailed Hawks nesting on a rusty fire escape to American Kestrels hunting in graffiti-covered alleys. His wildlife photography has been featured on the American Kestrel Partnership website, published in the Providence Journal, and exhibited in the Washington, DC office of United States Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI). After ten years of sharing photos and stories on his blog and social media, Peter published his first book in 2020, “Providence Raptors: Documenting the Lives of Urban Birds of Prey.”
