Walkabout

The outdoor classroom was almost completely devoid of birds on Tuesday (one lonely Lesser Goldfinch!), so we decided to go walkabout. We ended up seeing two crows fly by, land on school grounds, and start cawing. Right after that, two Cooper's Hawks were spotted soaring around the cul-de-sac across the street. On the way into the building, a male robin kindly landed in a tree by the front door. All in all, some different birds than we usually see at the outdoor classroom!

Students also became Bird Song Heroes at Miss Vicky's Wednesday visit. They scored 90% on Ultimate Bird Song Hero! Luckily, they are better sound birders than their teacher.
