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.
