The Oregon Zoo and Portland General Electric will present the popular free-flying bird show that features lighthearted humor, a conservation theme and gracefully soaring raptors that glide over the top of visitors' heads.

"Take Flight!" takes place 11 a.m.-1 p.m. daily through Sept. 3 (excluding concert days) at the Oregon Zoo, 4001 S.W. Canyon Road. It features Sonora the Harris hawk, which grabs treats straight out of the air; Oshi the toucan showing off his large and colorful bill; and Clyde the turkey vulture representing nature's all-important cleanup crew.

At noon daily, "Scale Tales" offers a chance to meet one of the zoo's boa constrictors.

Firefighters book

The seventh book in the Sage Adair historical/fictional mystery series "Slow Burn: A Sage Adair Historical Mystery," by Yamhill Press, will be released June 26 to commemorate the 105th David Campbell memorial service at Portland Firefighters' Memorial Park on West Burnside Street.

Campbell, a Portland fire chief, was killed in 1911 during an oil tank fire on Portland's east side. The book, with Sage Adair as anchor character, features Campbell and firefighters, and a tale of courage and sacrifice interwoven with a story of how Portland's black community addressed growing racism in the post-Reconstruction era.
