the Educator

Elise, the red-tailed hawk, one of the education birds that visits school kids as part of the Black Hills Raptor Center's outreach program. She has been to over 1000 classrooms throughout the region so far. She was ruffling a few feathers and causing birdy freak-outs among some fellows at a bird show hosted by my favorite greenhouse. Stay tuned

Readin' backwards--the boots and stirrups--fun photo.

Rescue bird, they figure she is 20+ years old. 51F this morning, we go between freezing our fannies and getting the newspaper from the box in bare feet!
