I was chatting with my brother last night and we got talking about school mascots. I suddenly realized that all of mine have been birds. My highschool went to battle as the Fenelon Falcons, the university where I did my under grad degrees cawed mightily as the Carleton Ravens, and then for my grad degree I went to Wilfrid Laurier where the Golden Hawks flew supreme. Still, if I ever go back to school for my PhD I want to find one with squirrels as the mascot. I have several chants in mind…but as there is a growing nut allergy in the world today I’ll leave them up to your imagination.
Birds on the brain

My high school were wolves, which snack on birds 😀
Ah, but my brother’s school had a gryphon which I’m pretty sure top wolves in the food chain 🙂
Ooh, cool, a gryphon. Now that is a mascot!
