Over the past couple of weeks. a group of students put together a presentation about International Migratory Bird Day that they shared will all of the 6th and 7th graders. Each student focused on a different species, in addition to providing some basic information about migratory birds. I was so proud of the initiative students took to make this happen. They also hosted a school wide migratory bird art contest. The students are hoping to expand the festivities next year to provide more opportunities for students across the school to learn about the wonders of migratory birds.
We are excited to head out later this week in search of screech owls with Matt Stuber. Hopefully some owlets will still be in their boxes. Outside the classroom window we have been seeing song sparrows, black-billed magpies, mallards, house finches, black capped chickadees and gold finches.
