After a presentation in which we learned about where owls live, when they are awake (they are nocturnal) and what they like to eat and sound like, Ms. P introduced us to Scout. Scout is an owl that was rescued and now lives at Burlington High School in an outside enclosure.
Scout is cared for by Ms. P. She came to her at about 3 months old and is now 1 1/2 years old. Taken from the wild as a very young owl, Scout never learned to survive on her own. She now helps students in Burlington learn about Owls, animals and living things.
Students were completely enthralled with the visit by Ms. P of the Burlington Science Center.
