A Visit to the Nature Center

As an extension to our bird study, we decided to take a trip to the Nature Center to see the other birds of prey. Although it was chilly we walked around the outdoor enclosures and the wonderful guides at Leslie Science and Nature Center introduced us to the birds. We met many different owls such as the Great Horned Owls.
We saw a falcon, a kestral, turkey vultures, different owls but the bird that stole the show was the Eagle! She was very entertaining and wanted us to come back and see her even when we were looking at the other birds. She was voted the favorite!
When we returned to school one of the children wanted to write the names of the birds with the moveable alphabet.
