Spring Has Arrived at Lake Ridge/ Merlin and Little Hawk came to visit

The sounds and sites of spring are here at Lake Ridge. The plants in our pollinator garden are beginning to grow. We have dafodillas and crocus already blooming. Also the red-winged black birds have arrived in force. We have 20-30 at our field daily. Their beautiful trill sound is another sign of spring. We also have plenty of house finches, collared and mourning doves, and house sparrows at our feeders. The robins and kill deer can also be seen and heard on our school grounds. 

Other news at Lake Ridge is that Cori from the BLM brought Llittle Hawk and Merlin to visit. All the 5th grade classes and a few first grade classes had a chance to see the birds and listen to Cori explain the adaptations of birds of prey like hawks and owls. Thank you Susan Kain for arranging for Cori and the birds of prey to visit our school, and thank you Cori for the amazing presentation.
