a free-flying Harris' Hawk, a Peregrine Falcon and a Golden
mascot is an eagle, but most kids have never seen such a massive
bird up close," said Jordan Road Christian School Principal
Greg Isaac. "Our students learned important aspects of the
raptors and had a blast in the process."

included a flight by the Harris' Hawk in the school gym.
Harris' Hawk was so big and fast. I learned about how hawks
hunt in packs," said Josh Sands, 10.

Fish and Wildlife to adopt and protect these birds, Joey Huff,
