Bird and Owl Program at Greenacres!

This had to be one of the coolest programs ever. We got to disect owl pellets and bring home the bones. Sophia found a whole skull in her pellet and Jacob found a jaw bone with teeth. It was amazing to see everything that was contained in one small pellet. They spent another part of the program discussing beaks and figuring out what types of beaks were best adapted to each type of work. We viewed wings close up and then they went on a hike.

Sophia surprised me by throwing a fit when we got there. She ended up sitting in the van for the first half of the program. Not sure what her problem was, but she came around and enjoyed disecting the pellet that Donna saved for her!
