owl in Mexico

Each winter, faculty member Dr. George Lauterbach and his wife, Janice, travel to Mexico to go birding.  They always share a special picture with us.  This year, they sent a picture of a hard-to-find bird that they’ve been looking for for years! It is the Colima Pygmy Owl.  This little owl is only 5 inches tall, hunts during the day, is ferocious, preys on other small birds and mammals, and nevertheless is adorable. This picture shows it actually facing away from the camera so you see its back.  Its head is twisted 180 degrees in response to Dr. Lauterbach's call.  It is indigenous to the western coast of Mexico and terrifies birds when it enters their habitat.

With the end of finals, faculty can finally catch their breath and have some fun. Faculty and friends of the chemistry department gathered together to celebrate the holidays at Dr. Ivey's house. We ate our favorite falafel pizza, munched on cookies and other sweet treats and played games. Until next year! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and All the Best in 2019!
