November Science Club

This month's science club was held on a Tuesday night at Elachee. Brent went with Andrew and they learned about nocturnal animals. They had a guest named Owlbert come and visit with them. Owlbert is a Great Horned Owl, the most common owl in the state of Georgia, who was hit by a car and subsequently lost an eye. Since he no longer has any depth perception, he is unable to survive in the wild. He now lives at a rescue center and travels around the state teaching children about wildlife.
Here he is with his trainer getting out of his cage.

After the visit with Owlbert, they got to dissect owl pellets. This was Andrew's first dissection, and I was so sad to miss it!

A few of their findings. . .
They also went on a night hike in the woods. Needless to say, Brent didn't get any pictures of that activity. I really don't know who had the most fun, Andrew of his daddy!
