Also at Mrs. Crawford's feeders birds are nesting and that means that there are low numbers and that makes me :(. That is all for today, folks. This is your bird reporter, Seth, signing out for now.

Blackbird Fortress Has Been Built! Our Feeders Have Been Quiet but the Skys Have Not.

Hello I am Seth, your bird watcher and reporter, with some important news today. Red-winged Blackbirds have been coming to our feeders and right now we are calling our feeders Blackbird Fortress. The Blackbirds have been eating us out of seed but we are still surviving and we still have seed but we might run out by the end of the year. Who knows what will happen. There is more news. This time of year is nesting season so our feeders have been quiet but flying over head is the Canadian Goose and the beautiful Snow Goose. Well that is all for today, see you next time when there is an awesome bird comotion. This is your bird reporter, Seth, signing out.

Red-winged Blackbirds are Coming to Our Feeders and are Eating Us Out of Seed!

Hello bird watchers, this is Seth your bird reporter and I have some good news about Mrs. Crawford's class. Even though the numbers have dropped on our smaller birds the numbers on our big birds has improved with some new birds visiting our feeders. The Red-winged Blackbird has starting coming to our feeders and has been eating a lot of our seed, so we are running out of seed to fill the bird feeders. I wonder if their stomachs are endless pits because of how much  they eat.

Where Have All the Birds Gone? Big Numbers Are Dropping.

March 17, 2015 - 1:29pm -- Laura Crawford

Hello and this is Seth, your bird reporter and watcher, reporting that the bird numbers are dropping which is probaly because it is nesting season. They are not coming to the feeders as often and are making nests instead, but that might soon change when they are feeding their young. Recently, Mrs. Crawford's class has been losing numbers that they used to have. Also, wait no, it can't end yet! Fine I'll wrap it up. Okay see you tomorrow on the Bird Watcher News on Channel 9.
