A Charm of Finches

A Charm of Finches

February 14, 2018 - 9:51am -- helenfisher

Today we saw a charm of finches. One of our members was watching a game show and the question was what is a flock of finches called and the answer was a charm. We also have been sighting predators. Today two of our members were observing the charm of finches when suddenly a Cooper's Hawk swooped down into their line of vision and all of the finches scatered. A week ago we also saw a cat that was stalking the birds. A week ago that time we also saw another cat which was stalking the birds as well. Also, last Thursday a Cooper's Hawk was seen perched on a lamp post near our school. It had been watching us the whole time. We saw no other birds that day.
