What's New

The Juncos Have Arrived!!!

October 3, 2014 - 10:21am -- Laura Crawford

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.

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
