Im Clarity and i go to Sage International Boise. My dad is a falconer. I have been interacting with birds of pray since I  was small. The great thing about having a dad as a falconer is that, we have a femail American Kestral in our house and i get to watch it mature ,and learn alot about it. My dad is now having it fly in our backyard witch is cool to see. This morning I was filing up our clss bird feeders and I saw 6 gold finch.

Fabulous Bird by Bird Teachers,

I want to share a couple of upcoming opportunities for students (and teachers) to get out and observe birds.  Each month, the Golden Eagle Audubon Society hosts a family bird walk.  These walks take place in parks around Boise.  Binoculars and guidebooks are provided for participants to use.  The walks are guided by Audubon members familiar with the birds likely to be in the area.  In addition, students can earn rewards for being part of the "Frequent Fliers" club.  The next bird two walks are listed below.  We would love to have your students join us.  Please email me at kgnojewski@cableone.net if you have any questions.

Happy Winter!

Distracting Squirrels, busy feeders and bird boxes.

December 4, 2015 - 12:43pm -- kgnojewski

The squirrels have been frequent (and distracting) visitors to our feeders.  In addition to the acrobatic squirrels, we a downy woodpecker visit our suet feeder this week.  One project that our students are working on this winter is to assemble and place several songbird nest boxes around campus.  A seventh grade student cut out the pieces for the boxes which were assembled by students during study hall.  Over the winter we will be deciding on the best locations to place the boxes, so that we can set them up in early spring.  We are looking forward to seeing which birds move in.

Special Visitor

This week Vicky Runnoe visited the sixth grade classes with Fiona, a female American Kestrel.  The students learned about the characteristics that make birds unique.  The students were amazed to learn that many of them are not able to flap their "wings" at a rate matching even a crow.  Thanks so much to Vicky for inspiring students to deepen their interest in birds!
