Bird Observations Week 3

Bird Observations Week 3

September 14, 2017 - 5:36pm -- Kris Stone

Ten students observed birds today in the Community Garden at two separate times (3:05-3:20 and 3:25-3:40).  Students observed and identified 3 species: American Goldfinch, California quail, and Black-capped Chickadees.  Here are some of the students’ comments today:  

  • I thought that it was interesting that some American Goldfinches stayed at the feeders, even though we were close.”

  • What I found interesting was how many birds there were.

  • They were pretty.

  • I found it interesting that the birds are out in the wind instead of the trees.

  • I found out they travel in packs.

  • American Goldfinch ate of the feeder and the quail ate off the ground.

  • I like how they go in groups.”
