Nature Experienceship - Birding with Merrill Webb

Nature Experienceship - Bald Eagles
February 9, 2013

We had another wonderful outing with Merrill Webb! The event started off with a wonderful mini-ceremony by former students of Mr. Webb in appreciation of Mr. Webb's amazing influence as a teacher. We made our way through different locales throughout the morning. Our first destination we saw a bald eagle as it was flying away. We may have missed the eagles since they appeared to be leaving the roost to in search of food. Nevertheless, we did have the opportunity to see a few of these magnificent animals. We also had the opportunity to see 14 other species of birds including the Black-crowned Night-Heron. We enjoyed wonderful doughnuts and orange muffins from Provo Bakery while we observed these incredible animals. Join us for our next experienceship with Mr. Webb.
