Raptors Visit the Middle School

Four birds of prey –a Barn Owl, Great Horned Owl, Red Tailed Hawk, and a Turkey Vulture –visited the Middle School this week during Community Time. Guest speaker Marla Isaac, from the New England Reptile & Raptor Exhibits, spoke to the students about the birds’ biology, hunting strategies, and the importance of recognizing that the birds are wild animals and not suitable as pets. Each bird had its turn in the spotlight, and students were allowed an up-close look at these majestic animals.
