CE: Science of...Raptors

Thursday, August 4, 2022
3:00 pm4:00 pm

As much as I wish we could spend a whole Science of Episode discussing the coolest animal within the Jurassic Park movies, we will actually be talking about the other raptors- the birds of prey. Technically in the scientific world the term “bird of prey” describes any bird that preys on other animals- so this includes penguins and storks. So, since this is confusing and now I have totally changed your opinion on penguins, we will be using the word “raptor”. Raptors have amazing adaptations that help them survive they could be everything from a tiny kestrel, to the extremely powerful Golden Eagle. Join us and learn everything you wanted to know about this unique group of birds.
