Weekly Wrap Up - Going to the Birds, Literally!

Audubon Birds of Prey SanctuaryThis week, in conjunction with studying Flying Creatures, we took a field trip to Audubon Birds of Prey Sanctuary.








This center is unique because they take injured Birds of Prey (Raptors - Eagles, Falcons and Owls), rehabilitate them and then if possible, release them back into the wild.  The birds that are not able to be released become welcomed members of the sanctuary.

 And...in other news, this week my youngest studied Da Vinci and my olders studied Michelangelo in art.

It's hard to tell from the photos, but, everyone did a nice job!
