Council Expoloring Science students did their own “Christmas Bird Count on Thursday, December 14, 2017. They spent a class period counting and identifying bird along the Weiser River Trail. One group of students observed a great blue heron at the pond! Students also observed black-capped chickadees, California quail,and housesparrows.
A week later, students made 3 bird feeders to feed the birds at Christmas break. They made a deluxe feeder out of recycled plastic bottles, baling twine, and willow sticks; a pine cone feeder smeared with lard and rolled in bird seeds; and a thistle “sick” feeder made out of lace and embroidry thread!
