In Mr. Neely's 4th grade class, we have three or four people out on every recess to observe birds. We have one round feeder and two tube-like bird feeders. The types of birds that we have seen are house finches, mourning doves, and black capped chickadee.
We also use binoculars and books that help us see what kinds of birds they are. The books that we use are The Finch Hand Book, Pocket Guide to Sage Bush Birds, Sibly's Backyard Birds of the Rocky Mountain States, Birds of Idaho, and Biginners' Guide to Birds.
Everyday many birds go to our feeders. We have one ground feeder and two high feeders. So far we have found 28 birds today. We mostly see house finches, mourning doves, and black capped chickadees. The Bird By Bird program is awesome!
Also, we have a special man, Mr. Ridenhour that comes to our classroom to teach us about the types of birds we will be seeing. Also, something cool that he will be doing is bringing live birds to show us. We are so excited.
