Horizon Wings

Horizon Wings Raptor Rehabilitation and Education visited King/Robinson Magnet School in New Haven on June 18. Mary-Beth Kaeser and Jeanne Wadsworth brought an American kestrel, a broad-winged hawk, a peregrine falcon, and a great-horned owl to show the school’s students.
The program was sponsored by Menunkatuck Audubon Society as part of its adoption of King/Robinson.

Bald Eagle at King Robinson

On January 13, 2010, a Bald Eagle visited King/Robinson Magnet School in New Haven, CT. The eagle settled in a tree outside the 7th and 8th grade science classroom. Mrs Sullivan, the teacher, had two of the 8th graders get the spotting scope and camera and the students recorded the eagle as it ate the gull.
King/Robinson has been adopted by Menunkatuck Audubon Society. Menunkatuck has given the school binoculars, spotting scopes, and other optics for the science classroom. The purchase of the optics was supported by grants from the Society of Women Environmental Professionals and the Audubon Shop of Madison, CT.

Red-tailed Hawk eating breakfast

Back in December, early in the morning, we were walking to school and saw a Red-tailed Hawk eating a gull right in front of our school. So Mrs Sullivan said to get the scope and take pictures before it left. Here they are!
