It's time for the annual Birds of Prey event at the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford.  From 1-3pm on Saturday, you can learn about and meet several live raptors that could include the Screech Owl, Bard Owl, Kestrel and Red Shouldered Hawk. 

Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau spokesman Stephanie Tate tells The Big Z the Treehouse Wildlife Center will provide the stars of the show.
