Jeanine Lackey, Fish and Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Grand Island, recently visited the zoology class at North Platte Community College.

According to instructor Sara Morris, Lackey worked with the students on a habitat/bird match activity to get the students thinking about bird habitats in Nebraska. The students were then presented with binoculars and guide books reviewing how to classify and identify bird and sound.

Later, Lackey escorted the students on a bird walk where they observed, listened and recorded observations to include in a bird Journal. After returning to the classroom, she introduced the students to her Broad-winged Hawk, “Chinkapin.”

When Lackey used a phone computer to search for the call of the hawk, it then responded to the phone.

“Even birds take phone calls,” Morris said with a laugh.

The students then continued with a discussion about migration, banding and how injured birds are fostered and placed in care facilities.
