WEST AKRON — The F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm hosted representatives from Quail Hollow State Park’s Carriage House Nature Center Aug. 31 in a program that allowed visitors to get up close to birds of prey.

West Akron resident Josh Tummel is shown above, at left, as D’artagnan Trail, 3, and brother Xavier Trail, 7, observe Sky, a red tail hawk.

Dana Tipton, of Bath, and her son Ben are shown in the background at right as they observe one of the other hawks on display.
