Predator birds come to Waynesville

Written by 

Get ready for live talons, Waynesville.

Doris Mager, better known as “The Eagle Lady,” will appear with her birds of prey at 10:30 a.m. June 12 at the Waynesville branch of the Haywood County Library. Mager’s program about raptors is for adults and children.

Mager travels around the country putting on such programs and has visited the libraries in Haywood County for about the past eight years. In all, the 87-year-old Mager has been rehabilitating and advocating for birds of prey for more than 50 years.

This year, the performance will not feature Mager’s star bird, Cara, the Caracara, a southern predator bird in the falcon family. Cara died last year at the age of 36. However, the show will include other birds that travel with Mager in her van across the country.

Seating for the show is limited, and participants are asked to arrive early. Large groups are asked to make reservations. Mager will return Aug. 7 for another show at the Waynesville library.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
