Owls

Ms. P of the Science Center presented about owls today!  We learned about the Great Horned Owl and the Barred Owl.
We learned that owls have very big eyes!  This is what we would look like if we had eyes proportionate to an owl's eyes!

Owls have sharp claws called Talons.
This 6 month old owl named Scout lives at Burlington High school but visits schools with Ms. Pavlicek!


We learned about an owl's wings and feathers.
Owl's use their tail feathers to steer.
We did not get close enough to touch Scout, but we did touch an owl that has been preserved through taxidermy!  The feathers are so soft!


Anyone can visit Scout.  He lives outside the high school in a special enclosure.  Mrs. Hoyt visited him last week!
