Lunch with Leuc and Mestaae
Leuc the bald eagle dined on rat today, and Mestaae the Eastern screech-owl enjoyed a mouse meal. The diets of our winged ambassadors include prey items that they would normally choose for themselves if they were in the wild.
Leuc's hatch year was 1980; read his story here. Many of you who have visited us over the years have made his acquaintance. He is an important part of TRC's history and education efforts.
Mestaae joined our education staff in 2008. He is an effective teacher when talking about the differences in small and large raptors being successful with their different prey choices.
