With all the test review and fourth quarter craziness, we haven't gotten outside as much as I'd like. Just to touch base, I asked the class, "What birds have you been seeing?" In a sight to warm a birder's heart, pretty much all 29 hands immediately shot into the air. Everybody had a sighting or story to share and was enthused about doing so. Kids had been listening to birds, seeing new birds (Killdeer, Great Blue Heron), and talking about birds. They all agreed that they are definitely teaching their families about birds and are considered the bird experts at home!
