We attended a lecture called "Birds are amazing" at the university. The children haven't been to a university before so it was a great experience. The lecturer was very good. A great mixture of information, a mix of media and props, and good interaction.
The children got a feather to investigate while it's properties were described.
And even a real golden eagle!!
After the lecture, we got a have a private Q & A with the lecturer :)
After which we went to go and say hello to the eagle.
The kids were so impressed :)
The exhibits that were put up were excellent.
Look at the holes in the bones
Once most of the other children had gone (yes, we were the last to leave) we got to see the eagle without its headgear, and have it's snack.
B then took the camera and went off to take these next pictures. I stayed with K, who wanted to stay and question the eagle's handler.
A great day learning with friends :)
