The whole school was here for the day, 90 miles away for a drive in the little school bus, and we lucked out with the weather. K-6 student population = 11 students. These kids were pretty darn savvy- one boy knew that Peregrines top speed is 240 mph (!) Everyone observed the difference between the Pygmy and Saw-whet Owls, and told me the size of their eyes indicates day-time and night-time hunting, little versus big. Yep, Junior Zoologists and way fun, especially for Nico the Dog.

Okay, back photographing the eagle nest after a three year hiatus, not of my choosing but of the eagles. She is feeding at least one here, unfortunately blocked by nest material. Project Number 1 is a new dry-point etching (Peregrine Flight) and Number 3 is photographing the Red-tailed Hawk nest. Gotta get your ducks in a row, so to speak.

First REAL program since last February 2020 (Zooms don't count) and 52 kindergartners at Florence Elementary today, courtesy Mrs. White. Sib and Owen and question number one from the kids: "Can your falcon do any tricks?" Answer: "Yes, steal hats off people’s heads and fly away." So glad to be back at it!

Another jazz birthday, Ella Fitzgerald's is today, our American Kestrel named for her when she joined us eight years ago. Ella is the best vocalist, ever, period. Ella the kestrel here with a mouse and her brother Wes (Montgomery, best guitarist ever) share the building by the eagles, singers in their own style.

I think so anyway. A flurry of activity Sunday and looks like one brooding female last evening. Canada geese in there the last two years, empty the year before that so a welcome event. Here's the scope in the living room the day it snowed, and we can watch until the leaves block the view. I can guess when she settles down and add 35 days for chicks. My Project!
