Wild Birds Presentation for 5th Grade Class

The fifth graders were treated to a presentation about wild birds in conjunction with their studies in science class.  A representative from the Tenafly Nature Center brought a Red Tail Hawk and a Bard Owl for the children to see.  These two birds were injured early in life and cannot live in the wild, so they are part of this educational exhibit.
