Posted: Friday, October 29, 2010

JUNEAU - The public is invited to the City Museum for November's Coffee & Collections Presentation on some of Juneau's most notorious raptor residents.

In celebration of their extended exhibit, "All Things Eagle and Raven," Sandy Harbanuk will discuss "Party Animals and Stuffed Shirts: The Social Histories of Ravens and Eagles." beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6. After giving a brief discussion on the natural history of eagles and ravens, Harbanuk will focus on the social lives of eagles and ravens and their relationship with humans. Blueberry, a non-releasable raven from the Juneau Raptor Center, will also be in attendance to greet museum visitors. As a member of the Juneau Raptor Center, Harbanuk has worked extensively in wild bird rehabilitation and has been Blueberry's caretaker and handler for 14 years. Currently, Harbanuk is working on a book titled "The Life and Times of Alaska's Bald Eagles: A Social and Natural History" which will be released next spring.

This event will mark the second lecture of the season. Coffee & Collections is a monthly presentation series offered October through April that explores Juneau's history, culture and natural environment. All presentations in the series are held at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum located at the corner of 4th and Main Streets. Coffee for this series is provided by Heritage Coffee Company.
