Down the hatch

Children watch a great horned owl swallow a mouse given to the bird by Raptor Center naturalist Kelly Scott Tuesday morning at Autumn Hills Park in Oak Park Heights. Scott told her audience of children and adults that great horned owls swallow their food whole. Besides the owl, Scott brought a bald eagle, red-tailed hawk and peregrine falcon to the park program, part of the city’s Summer Activities in the Park series. (Gazette staff photo by Erik Sandin)
