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.

Weather Forcast: Bird Storm

September 29, 2014 - 12:42pm -- Laura Crawford

Today I went out to the airlock and I saw so many birds I thought it was a bird storm. I told my teacher that there were so many and they were moving around so fast I couldn't count them. She sent out more people to help me count, and I finally got the count and you will not believe this but there were fifty-three birds. I don't believe it but there were thirty- three female house sparrows and three male. Strangly there were only twelve female house finches and four male. I believe the sparrows have found and taken over the feeders. This is your bird reporter Seth signing off. 

I have never seen so many birds in one place

Today when it was time to watch birds, we got a surprise. There were twenty-two female house finches and four male finches at our feeders and in our bird bath. I wondered why there were so many birds in one place. Then when we went on our walk, we saw ten starlings on a telephone pole and five killdeer near our playground. I guess birds have found our feeder and bath and told their freinds because I have never seen so many birds in one place.  Seth   

We filled our feeders today

The feeders that needed to be filled were the ground feeder and the black oil sunflower feeder. The house finches seem to like the black oil sunflower seeds most of all but they also eat from the ground feeder and rarely from the thistle seed feeder.
