New Science Center Animal March 5, 2012

Posted by bsciencecenter in Uncategorized.

We would like to introduce you to our new American Kestrel, named Halley.  She was named after the famous comet!

Halley was kept illegally as pet and confiscated by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  She was then taken to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah for care and veterinary treatment.

Haley and Ms. Pavlicek

She will be used in some of our educational programs throughout the year, covering such topics as the characteristics of birds, animal behavior, habitats, and ecosystems.

She has quite the personality and we are thrilled to have her as part of our center.

Kestrel are a protected species and populations are in decline in Massachusetts.  Find out how you can help by clicking here.

Hi! You have to have a special license to keep a bird of prey. I am glad you like our new bird. The correct spelling is tortoise!
