The Raptor Trunk is jam packed full of information about raptors. While not all raptors are included in the trunk, you will find hands on activities, props, games, mounts and activities to use in a classroom setting. Use owl pellets to discuss food webs, compare and contrast hawk and owl wings to find the secrets of silent flight, or find out how you "measure up" to an Osprey or Eagle.

Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers can be found at the refuge year-round. Although difficult to tell apart, the downy woodpecker is smaller than the hairy and its beak is noticeably shorter. Look for these birds hopping up and down the trunks and branches of trees searching for insects.
