Raptor Education Group, Inc (REGI) Birds Featured in Wisconsin Trails Magazine
We are happy and excited to announce that several of our education birds are featured in the most recent issue (Oct 2010) of Wisconsin Trails magazine. Wisconsin Trails is a well-respected magazine in our state, which makes the honor all the more pertinent. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! As an additional bonus, a photo of one of our favorite resident chickens appears on the back page. While the story is unrelated to her personally, it is an honor to have this special little lady showcased.
The photo above of our red-phase Screech Owl is just one of those you will see. Photographer Jerry Luterman did a fantastic job not only of photographing our birds but also being sensitive to their needs and ours during the process. I am a stickler when it comes to the well being of our birds. Keeping me happy means the photo session had to be stress-free and uncompromising for the birds. That can be a challenge for photographers.:)
Fall has arrived! The brightly colored leaves of the Maple and Oak trees are spectacular in our region now. Migration is ongoing, but many species have already left Wisconsin for warmer climates. Last night we had a hard frost with the temperature dipping to a chilly 23 degrees F. or -6.7 degrees C.
The clinic is full of patients, so stay tuned to the next blog.
Happy fall everyone,
