Bird Feeders!

Bird Feeders!

October 11, 2017 - 1:07pm -- Anser kindergarten

At the end of Setember we ventured up to the IBO's Lucky Peak Site. There we saw many, many songbirds including Dark Eyed Juncos and Ruby Crowned Kinglets. This inspired kindergarteners to add bird feed to our already present (but empty) bird feeders to attract birds! We read Bird Feeder Banquet; an excellent pre-cursor to filling up the feeders. After filling up the feeders we felt inspired to create signs to let people at our school know that the feeders were for the birds. What excitment we've had watching Mourning Doves visit the ground feeder, and many House Sparrows and Goldfinches at the hanging feeders. Even at 5 and 6 years of age we can citizen scientists! Thank you Bird by Bird for the bird food and other materials. This is exciting work as we learn to identify all the birds at our feeders, and learn to accurately count and record each bird. Stay tuned for more.... In Birds We Trust...Anser Kindergarten
