Visit from Kacey Kai and Susan Kain from Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge

October 16, 2014 - 8:08pm -- Laura Crawford

Yesterday Kacey Kai and Susan Kain, our Bird by Bird facilitators from Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge, came to visit our class. They shared with the students how to use their available tools when birding. Students were trained on how to use the binoculars, bird books, and the E-flier to help identify bird species. Thank you, Kacey and Susan for your visit. The class is already looking forward to next month's visit.

World War III has began!!!!!

October 7, 2014 - 1:59pm -- Laura Crawford

World War III is already in action. The sparrows also have allies, the quail, and have been sending ambushes. The finches and juncos have responded with a rock dove or a pigeon. The Allies have also allies with the rock doves and are using them as guards. The sparrows and quail didn't come close to the feeders or the birdbath. I think that the Allies are winning the fight and we think that the gold finch might have allied with their cousins but when I saw it what looked like a gold finch it turned out that it wasn't one but we think we have seen some flying. The most suprising piece of information was the rock dove as a guard. I am still betting on the Allies and but I also think that this war might end up in an agreement to share the bird feeder so then there might be peace among the birds but so far the war is still raging on. This is breaking news, and this is your bird reporter Seth signing out.    

The Juncos Have Arrived!!!

This is your bird reporter Seth. There has been some breaking news. Juncos have arrived at our feeder and no sparrows have come close to our feeders. I believe that the juncos have allied with the finches and now it is World War III in the fight for the feeder. I think that the Juncos have brought winter with them which might help the Allies and they might win the fight against the other birds. This is big because the finches were getting beat badly until the juncos came and now World War III has been started, and personally I bet on the Allies. This is your bird reporter Seth signing out until the next awesome bird report.

Feeders need to be filled daily

Our class usually has to fill the ground and sunflower feeders daily. The quail are the birds that love our ground feeder. House finches clear our sunflower feeder.
