What’s Your Wingspan?

The next time you are visiting Newport, stop in at the Nature Center for some bird-centric fun. How does your wingspan compare to some of our favorite feathered friends?

Here’s our little superhero Ezra Scattergood-Keepper, reaching as far as he can. We think he is pushing Broad-winged Hawk dimensions…a nearly 34-inch wingspan.


The kids always ask if anyone has the wingspan of an eagle. Well, the eagle has landed. His name is Trevor Ash…and he grew up not far from Newport.
