For Youth RaptorCorp's (YRC) January meeting, we discussed owl adaptations including their silent flight! The students got to see a flight demonstration from Lois the great horned owl. Her soft feathers beautifully show how an owl silently sneaks up on its prey in an ambush attack. Thank you to TRC volunteer Nickie M for the video.
The students also helped with creating enrichment toys for the education raptors out of natural rope, and helped with cleaning/maintenance of the crates used to transport the birds to offsite education programs.
