OWL (Orphaned Wildlife) Rehabilitation Society’s annual open house is coming up next month, offering opportunities to get up-close-and-personal with the rescue organization’s resident bald eagle, Sonsie, and other feathered friends.

Set for May 4 and 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the event will also feature kids games, food trucks and guest exhibitors, as well as a 1 p.m. raptor release.

OWL – located at 3800 72 St. in Delta – is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned birds of prey.
