We were very disappointed today because our bird walk to Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge was canceled because of the weather. Hopefully we can find a time to reschedule.
The bird feeders haven't been as busy since spring break, but there are more gold finches visiting the feeders. They are always exciting to see because they are so yellow now. We have also begun to see male red winged black birds at the feeders. We wonder why no female red wings come to the feeder. A white crowned sparrow was found dead by the glass doors near our feeders. We haven't seen them at our feeders so we were surprised to find the dead one. It probably was injured when it flew into the windows in the door.
Our class also excited by the personal bird feeders we received before spring break. Now we can watch birds at home and school and share what we have learned with our families. Thank you for the feeder and bird seed.
