Ms. Forderhase brought an old friend into class on Friday! His name is Merlin and he is a Great Horned Owl.
He was found many years ago near a road, having suffered from a broken wing. His wing is still a little droopy, but Ms. F said the he can
fly up to his perch from the floor-about 3-4 feet. He has enormous talons. If he was in the wild, he would use them to capture his food. He has no eye muscles because his
skull is very small. He can rotate his head about 270*. We all enjoyed meeting him, and I think he kind of liked us too!
