Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, we had the incredible opportunity of experiencing some incredible birds! You can visit the Hawk Quest website, or you can check out some of the Bird Cams they mentioned in the presentation! You can check out this page for some fun raptor facts.
Today we saw:
A Swainson's Hawk: the smartest raptor!
An Eastern Screech Owl: the cutest for sure!
A Peregrine Falcon: the world's fastest animal!
And a Bald Eagle: the symbol of our country!
Click comment below to let us know what you learned today, or maybe to ask some questions. If you find some great resources to share, that would be an awesome addition to our comments section as well!
We'll pay the first student to correctly answer both questions in a single comment 50 Dragon Dollars!
1. Why are predators at the top of the food chain especially susceptible to conservation issues?
2. What animal is the very top predator of all food chains?
