Riverside Elementary

This year will be so much fun to learn about birds!  First graders are wonderful birders and I'm looking forward to some great birding adventures!

What's New

Birding with kids!

We can't wait to start birding!

April Birds!

April 30, 2018 - 4:46pm -- Joni Brooks

Students are so excited to bird watch at home!  They are coming to school and diving right into their bird books to identify a bird they have spotted on the way to school.  Parents are having play dates with their kids and taking them on bird walks as one of the play time activities!  So awesome to see the kids and parents embrace this program!

March Bird Walk!!

April 1, 2018 - 6:48pm -- Joni Brooks

Riverside first graders went on a greenbelt bird walk Friday before spring break! They wanted to check on the Great Blue Heron nests! We also saw Northern Flickers and were able to identify Red Winged Blackbirds by sound. Students were excited to see a pair of ducks, which they couldn’t identify. We looked at them with our binoculars and took a picture with our minds! When we got back we looked in our Idaho Field Guides and discovered that we had seen a male and female Common Merganser! Such a fun little

walk!  

Birds of Prey Center!

February 28, 2018 - 4:22pm -- Joni Brooks

1st graders at Riverside Elementary had a fantastic time learning about California Condors and Peregrine Falcons.   Students were so excited to see both of these birds when visiting the Birds of Prey Center this month.  We also had a special treat when Ms. Deniz came to help up dissect Owl Pellets!  The kids LOVED this activity.  We have been more consistent with recording our daily feeder observations and continue to love to learn about birds!
