New Raptor Deck at the National Aviary
The National Aviary, located a few short blocks from the Priory, has just opened a new "Raptor Deck." The deck, which is located on the roof of the Aviary's new wing, features hawks and other birds of prey soaring from their perches and into the sky over the Allegheny Commons Park, grabbing their prey in mid-air, and then swooping back to base. It's a spectacular, one-of-a-kind show, and it adds to the fabric of attractions that you can only see in Pittsburgh. It's well worth a trip to the Aviary to check out the show.
