Yesterday Mrs. Coffman taught us the different types of bird nests.  There are many types of nests, such as cup, cavity, man-made, burrow, and many more.  We also made bird feeders and ot bird seed to take home.  The next time Mrs. Coffman comes we will tell her about the birds we will see and she wil even bring a special guest.  We can't wait to see who it is!

February Mourning Doves

March 2, 2017 - 8:25am -- ianneely

February was the month of the Mourning Dove for Grace Jordan.  We were able to see so many of these beautiful birds at the ground feeder this month.  Even when the ground was still covered in snow they would visit our school.  Students were amazed that they seemed completely unfazed by the squirrels who would sit right in the ground feeder as they searched for seeds nearby.  We hope to see more Mourning Doves in the future, they are a calm and peaceful bird to watch.

Mr. Ridenhour's Visit

January 27, 2017 - 4:48pm -- ianneely

This week Mr. Ridenhour came to our school and taught us about different places we can see birds.  He showed us his amazing collection of photos of birds he has found in his own backyard.  He has seen over 60 different species of birds!  Then he showed us how to make and use binoculars from toilet paper rolls and duct tape.  We practiced bringing the binoculars up to our eyes so that we can focus on birds.  It was a lot of fun!

Bird Calendar Project

November 30, 2016 - 1:16pm -- ianneely

This month we have been making a calendar for our parents.  We will be giving them to our parents for Christmas.  For every month we have a different bird and background.  For example, for October we have trees and an owl.  For April we have rain and bluebirds.  It's a great project!  Mr. and Mrs. Luque have been teaching us how to make our calendars once a week.  We can't wait to finish our calendars!
