Jessica Shipman, a volunteer for The Peregrine Fund, holds Winston, a fully grown Western screech owl, at the third of the Environmental Resource Center’s four Spring Science Series events, held Wednesday evening at The Community Library in Ketchum. The two nonprofit organizations partnered in an educational presentation attended by 75 people. The Peregrine Fund brought Winston and two other raptors—an American kestrel and a Swainson’s hawk—from its World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise. Discussion leader Curtis Evans, education coordinator for The Peregrine Fund, said the health of avian populations reflects the state of well-being of humans and the planet. ERC Executive Director Hadley DeBree said, “Birds are great ambassadors for the natural world, and … we residents of the Wood River Valley were lucky to see those beautiful raptors up close and personal.” The Spring Science Series will wrap up next Wednesday when Zoo Idaho visits The Community Library at 6 p.m.
