Bird TLC has a couple new presenters in it's education program. Patrica checked off on the rough-legged hawk and Beki checked off on the snowy owl. Both gals will make awesome representatives of Bird TLC
One of many things that TLC never has enough of is presenters. You just don't become one. There's a process that sometimes can be a little demanding, but it's necessary for the bird to be presented properly, handled properly and the presenter must know what to do if something goes wrong.
Beki has now been out on her 2 presentations that she must be observed by a veteran presenter. She's now good to go out on presentations on her own. I was fortunate to be her mentor with "Ghost" the snowy owl. She's excited about being a presenter with him ans she was a easily trained student.
Patrica still needs to do her 2 observed presentations but I'm sure she'll do fine on them. Ellen was her mentor with "Jasper" the rough-legged hawk.
I'm excited to see these ladies on board and look forward to seeing their presentations out in the field.
