“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; 

The less he spoke the more he heard; 

Why aren't we like that wise old bird?” 


Owls on the Prowl 
Sunday January 27, 2013  at 15h00-16h30
Presented by the Little Mad Scientists' Club 

What animal is armed with razor sharp talons, can fly as silently as a moth, can detect its prey even in pitch darkness, and is strong enough to hunt animals twice its weight?  Owls are among the champions of the predator world, with amazing adaptations that make them some of the most powerful, stealthy and deadly hunters in any habitat where they live.

 Come join Matt Black, science teacher at the Lennen Bilingual School and children’s musician based in Paris, for a first-hand look at these incredible nocturnal predators and some of the special adaptations that make them unique in the animal world.  And for a special treat, we’ll actually dissect their pellets (coughed-up lumps of undigested fur and bones of the animals they’ve eaten) to see what prey they’ve been hunting!  Each student will receive his or her own sterilized pellet to dissect with Matt’s help.
