"The Magic Stump" is a Turnstone film that tells the story of an Illinois tree stump that's attracted a phenomenal variety of wintering raptors through the years, including two rare Prairie Falcons. The goal of "The Magic Stump" is to draw attention to the story of raptors that winter in our highly altered agricultural landscape. The plan is for this film to be the first in "The Prairie State" series that will feature the landscape that once dominated Illinois. The film is directed by Bob Dolgan and edited by Sharon Filipkowski. Videography is by Mitchell Fransen and Mitchell Wenkus, and original music is by Empidonax.
