Which Raptor Is That?

December 1, 2014 - 2:47pm -- larryridenhour

The Friday before Thanksgiving break Larry came to Jennifer Bond's class to teach the students how to identify the 17 diurnal raptors that you can see in Idaho.  The focus was general differences: falcon vs hawk, buteo vs accipiter, eagle vs osprey, etc. with a test bird on the front of Larry's t-shirt.  The class was capped off with a viewing of Ms. Bond's favorite video - Falcon vs Mtn Biker.  This is a must see race between a mountain biker and a peregrine falcon.  The link to the video is below.

We just can't keep those feeders full!  Along with the birds, many squirrels are feasting.  They did a terrific job digging out our ground feeder after the big snow last week.  Sometimes, we see a pair of doves IN the ground feeder...just hanging out, sometimes up to 10 min. Students are wondering: are they resting? Guarding the stash? Hmmm....
