I'm helping to coordinate the Salmon Festival at Knights Ferry on the Stanislaus River to be held from 10am-3pm on November 10th (Flyer attached).  I'm sending this call out for help because we are in need of two things: 1) We need 3 acoustic musicians to provide entertainment (sets are: 10-11:30, 11:30-1:00, and 1:00 to 1:30) 2) We would like to have a live bald eagle and handler to provide educational interpretation.

If any of you can provide acoustic entertainment a bald eagle or can point me in the right direction, please let me know.
Thank you,
Riverwatcher LT

For a musician, What does the gig pay? I know several That could. But they are professionals that don't work free

Sorry to say the gig only pays lunch.  It's a nonprofit educational family event.   Thank you for the eagle contacts I'll look into them right away.
Thanks again!

If you cant get a real eagle...


You could try subbing in FM1 for a bald eagle, the best handler for that one seems to be trusty PolePole. Though things are known to get out of hand with the snatching of carrion and cheap beer from the unsuspecting.


If we can get away we might be able to come by the festival to celebrate the return of river salmon :)
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps
