Wildlife on Lower Campus
Bill Robinson, known and loved by many RCS students as "The Birdman," returned to the Lower Campus on Friday for a wildlife education assembly--and, as always, he brought some friends along with him, including a hawk, a turkey vulture, an owl, an alligator, and some snakes. The Birdman captivated the students with stories about each of these remarkable creatures. Highlights included some of the defense mechanisms the birds employ (the aforementioned turkey vulture will actually throw up on a potential attacker), dietary habits (the owl enjoyed its lunch, a mouse, much to the delight of the kids), and a falconry display where the falcon swooped over the gym full of excited kids.
The feathered visitors and their artful guide infused joy in learning for students and teachers in this wonderful year opening assembly - a great way to soar into the weekend!
