Birds of Prey Presentation in April
The people from the Audubon Society, specifically from the Birds of Prey in Maitland, came to speak to our 9th grade students about the beautiful birds that live in our area. They emphasized the need for all us to be good stewards of our environment. As you can see the students were mesmerized with these birds and their plight. Each bird had an injury of some sort, be it missing an eye which limited their ability to hunt or in the case of the Bald Eagle who appeared to be perfect in everyway, was actually a bird with an injured lung and thus could not fly for long periods of time and live in the wild. We all learned a lot including the fact that eagles have 7,000 beautiful feathers. What a gentleman!
