Colonel the Red Tailed Hawk

Mr. Gauck invited Shawn Conner to Bridgeport Elementary to discuss ecosystems, food webs, and habitats with the fifth graders as they finished up their ecosystems unit.  Mr. Conner brought in Colonel The Red Tailed Hawk, a Barn Owl, and a Screech Owl.  The students learned about the local creatures they may have seen in their own back yards!  Students also applied what they learned from dissecting owl pellets and found out that all birds of prey expel pellets.  The students had a great time seeing these awesome creatures up close!
