Today at the Prospect Park Zoo class the kids learned all about owls. The instructor gave a wonderfully indepth presentation on the characteristics of owls. The kids, once again, were very eager to ask and answer questions and all seemed so fascinated by the information. She gave each group of kids a field guide and they had to identify the owl in the picture she was holding up. W was so proud that his team got them all right. Then the kids went to the tables to dissect owl pellets. It was so great so see how much the kids loved that. W had a couple of rodent skulls in his. They all got a laminated page to identify the different bones they picked out. Who knew owl vomit would be so cool? We still have the pellet he got at Urban Rangers - we're so gonna hit that one tomorrow.
