Curlews in the Classroom

Curlews in the Classroom

February 16, 2017 - 1:55pm -- Raptors

Today our class welcomed Heather from the Intermountain Bird Observatory to our classroom,

She came to tell us about Long-Billed Curlews. What fascinating birds! We learned that they migrate from Idaho to

Southern California and Mexico every year. Scientists, like Heather, are trying to determine why this bird's population

has declined by almost 90% since the 1970's. We are excited to track the migration and movement of the birds

who are fitted with satellite transmitters.

We think everyone needs to be aware of these birds so that they can regain their former numbers.
