" wildlife education to the Pike County Soil and Water Conservation Dis- trict (SWCD) 71st Annu- al dinner and meeting last Tuesday evening. The large crowd, welcomed by SWCD Chairman Norman Dillon, enjoyed a Hornville Tavern catered dinner, thanks to the hard work of district ad- ministrator Erica Burkem- per-Fischer and soil techni- cian Emily Kelly. The evening was kicked off with the Pledge of Alle- giance, led by Beau Dillon, and invocation by SWCD associate supervisor Brad Smith. Norman Dillon awarded table flowers to in- dividuals through a game of questions ranging from most grandkids, items in their possession, furthest traveling and the largest number of pictures on a phone, among other ques- tions. A fter the meal, Mark Booth introduced his audi- ence to four birds of prey that have been a part of his decades-long traveling edu- cational program. The four birds of prey were a Red- Tailed Hawk, an Ameri- can Kestrel, a Barred Owl and a Peregrine Falcon. All of his birds of prey are rescued birds and the Red- Tailed Hawk named Jack is 31 years old. Booth acquired him when the bird did not have a red tail, indicating that Jack was less than one year old at the time. The hawk had suffered some kind of accident that took the sight in one eye. Because of the lack of bin- ocular vision, the bird was at first landing on Booth's head rather than his gloved arm. Booth said the bird's talons are very sharp and that they use them defensively, as well as a means of prey capture. He said they can bite hard and draw blood, which he said he has experienced ma- ny times. All of his birds of prey can bite in defense but their main armament are talons to strike and grab prey in the air or on the ground. Booth said the Peregrine Falcon is one of the fastest birds of prey, power diving from ex- treme heights to over 200 miles per hour. Kestrels, which are declining in parts of their range, is the small- est North American fal- con, weighing just six ounc- es. The Peregrine, a much larger bird, has been taken off the endangered list since their heavy decline during the decades when DDT and other pesticides decimated the populations. Booth explained that there were important eco- logical niches, but diversity rather than large numbers of a species is a better goal for the health of the plan- et. Booth suggested that landowners can help propa- gate birds of prey with nest- ing boxes, cover and proper use of chemicals, farm ma- chinery and providing spac- es for prey. Following Booth's presen- tation, the business session was begun with the election and swearing in of Paul Lake by Norman Dillon. 'Take Flight!' featured birds of prey at Pike County SWCD meeting "Take Flight!" wildlife education program presenter Mark Booth introduced his 31-year old Red-Tailed Hawk at the SWCD meeting last Tuesday evening. Booth got Jack, the one-eyed Red-Tailed Hawk, when he was one year old. "One-eyed Jack" is a rescued bird and has been a part of the program for decades.
