Birds of prey to swoop into farmers market

Owls, falcons and other birds of prey will make an appearance at the Haywood Historic Farmers Market in Waynesville from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.

Doris Mager, known as the eagle lady, has dedicated her life to rehabilitating and caring for orphaned and injured birds of prey. Mager, who works with the organization Save Our American Raptors, will give people a chance to get up-close and personal with some of her birds, as well as learn about these amazing species. T-shirts will be available for sale depicting some of the North American Birds of Prey. You can also have your picture taken with one of the birds. A $5 donation is requested.

Also featured at the farmers market will be Jim Rigg & the Coffee Branch Band on stage playing some of the finest toe-tapping gospel, old standards and original songs in the area. 828.456.1793
