Snow Birds

November 13, 2014 - 5:00pm -- kgnojewski

The birds "flocked" to our feeders today.  Dark-eyed juncos, American goldfinch, a red-breasted nuthatch, house finches and mourning doves gathered outside our windows and on the feeders just out of the snow.  It was hard to keep the students focused on the lesson rather than the birds outside the window!

Black-billed Magpie

November 11, 2014 - 2:09pm -- kgnojewski

We have had several visits to the suet feeder from a determined Black-billed Magpie. He (or she) flies up to the feeder, grabs a morsel then flutters back to the ground over and over again. We have a funny view due to the position of our windows in the classroom. It almost looks as if he is jumping on a trampoline! We have been consistently seeing House Finches, American Goldfinch, Dark-eyed Juncos, Black-capped Chickadee and Red-Breasted Nuthatches. A Downy Woodpecker has been an occasional visitor.

Two sixth grade boys decided to share their love of birds with second graders by creating presentations about how birds are adapted to their environments. They have been working diligently daily their presentations. I am so proud of their efforts!

Birds We Saw

October 23, 2014 - 1:31pm -- kgnojewski

There have been lots of birds in the feeder, so everybody gets up and goes to the window to see what kind of birds they are. We saw ten California Quail on the eigth. The most common bird that comes to the feeder is the American goldfinch, but we sometimes see mourning doves and even a blackbilled magpie there.

A Great Day for Birds!

October 17, 2014 - 4:21pm -- kgnojewski

On Thursday just outside our classroom window we were able to see a wide variety of bird species.  In the span of thirty minutes we saw a Northern Flicker, several Black-Capped Chickadees, one Downy Woodpecker, one Red-Breasted Nuthatch, two Dark-eyed Juncoes, three Mourning Doves, a House Finch, approximately ten American Goldfinch.  Who would have guessed that our little feeders would draw in so many birds!  As we headed into the field there was a mixed group of about twenty American Crows and Black-Billed Magpies.  Can't wait to see what winter brings!
