Mrs. Natasha Bingham

The Hobble Creek 2nd grade classes were able to attend a presentation on Owls by Great Basin Wildlife Rescue. This was part of our study of nocturnal animals and habitats. We loved seeing the beautiful owls. We then dissected the owl pellets to examine mice and vole skeletons. Thank you for coming to Hobble Creek GBWR!

Mrs. Pugh's 2nd grade class looked through owl pellets to find rodent bones.  They matched the bones to a bone chart.  Several large skeletons were found, and lots of other bones.
