Students advertise festivities with birds of prey

Feathers and talons and beaks, oh my! Spectators ruffled their feathers during an impressive display of birds from the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Raptor Club.

Club members said they used the sunny afternoon and the breathtaking creatures to “advertise” the college’s Mom’s Weekend festivities.

Activities kick off April 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the WSU Veterinary Hospital open house. Following the event is a silent auction from noon to 5 p.m. in the ADBF building attached to Bustad Hall.
