More than 60 members and staff with their kids and grandkids enjoyed an hour show with the Cascades Raptor Center on July 26. The stars of the show were Tino, a Great Hormed Owl and Taka, a Swainson’s Hawk. The birds brought along Zach and Laura, their human coaches, who entertained and educated us about raptors in Oregon and specifically about them.
We learned that if we had eyes comparable to an owl’s they would be the size of our fists. Since owls can’t move their eyes, they can turn their heads 270 degrees! The reason they are raptors is that they grab their prey with their talons and that talent distinguishes them from other birds.
We got to see artifacts like owl and hawk wings and Osprey talons. All in all, it was a good time.
Thanks goes to the Audubon Club for making this happen.
