Raptors at the Nature Preserve
I birded the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve this morning between the rain and the raptor show. Great Horned Owl was not among the 25 species I counted, but was part of Outdoor Discovery's presentation at the pavilion intended primarily for kids.
So too were this Red-tailed Hawk and Peregrine Falcon, plus an American Kestrel, Broad-winged Hawk and Barred Owl.
Of the 50 people in the audience, fewer than 10 were children, but everyone enjoyed learning about the raptors and seeing five up close and personal.
