Forest Owlet


If your family enjoys bird watching or if your child is particularly interested in animals, you might enjoy this article from Cornell University.  It’s an older article, but it’s about the Forest Owlet that was thought to be extinct and then was rediscovered in 1997.  There was theft, fraud, and international espionage involved.  It’s a pretty cool story – for adults or children.  It would make a great addition to any textbook or unit study of birds.
