Students at Crestwood Elementary were riveted by the wild bird show put on by Joe Rogers of the Wildlife Recovery Association. They learned that loons are not closely related to ducks but are related to penguins. Students had many questions about the owls, hawks and turkey vulture they were able to see as well as a pigeon and chicken they were able to pet. The visit was paid for by a donation to the wildlife program by the family of Lance Urbanski, a student at the school. The Wildlife Recovery Association is a non-profit 501c3.
