Students Learn About Birds of Prey
On Tuesday, June 4, Mr. and Mrs. Saltis from the Utica Peregrine Falcon Project visited Mrs. Baker’s classroom. Mrs. Saltis shared a presentation about the endangered Peregrine Falcons in Utica, NY and also brought two very special visitors. Iscah the Red-tailed Hawk and Sandy the Barred Owl are two birds that Mrs. Saltis brought as educational birds. Mrs. Saltis is a trained bird rehabber and currently has seven birds at her home for rehabilitation. Prior to the visit, Mrs. Baker’s students read about Peregrine Falcons and observed the Utica Peregrines and their new baby eyases through live web cams.
