A collection of student thoughts on our recent birding activities . . .
1-Our class is in the Bird by Bird program, and we have been birdwatching. So far, we have seen quail, house finch, mourning dove, a warbler (unidentified!), and house sparrows.
2-Miss Vicky came to visit yesterday, and I was super excited to learn more about the birds and see the American Kestrel. It was so cool!
3-I loved it when Miss Vicky came in. I also loved when she took out the raptor; it was a girl. Miss Vicky was funny.
4-Yesterday, we got to see an American Kestrel. She was beautiful-looking and chattery and sweet. She lost her left eye, so if she flies, she can get hurt.
5-Miss Vicky had a PowerPoint to tell us about birds. Do you know her favorite bird is a Black-capped Chickadee? It's not my favorite, but it is cute. Finally, the time of the live bird had come. Miss Vicky had brought an American Kestrel, the smallest falcon in the U.S.! The bird had small talons and long, big, thin pointed wings. The bird had only one eye, and they had rescued it. That day was so fun!
