Hawk Quest

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 Falconthe world's fastest animal!
And a Bald Eaglethe symbol of our country!

Feel free to look up the other raptors using Qwiki.com or Wikipedia

    1. Predators are on the top of the food chain because one all of the things predators have and how they hunt. They are also smarter then all the other animals in the food chain.
