Wingmasters visited 3rd Grade
On Tuesday, Jim Parks, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, spoke with the students about what characteristics all birds of prey have - talons to grab food, a top curved beak to break food, binocular vision, and superb flying ability.
All the birds Jim brought can be found in Chelmsford. Students saw an American Kestrel, a Red Tailed Hawk, a Barred Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and the Northern Saw Whet Owl. Each of the birds has an injury or condition that is preventing them from being released back into the wild. One of the interesting facts Jim shared was that the Barred Owl, the most common owl, has 10,000 feathers (even on its eyelids, legs, feet, and toes).
