FeederWatch and Bird Club
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 7:50 AM

11 Classrooms Join Project FeederWatch

This January through March, eleven classrooms will be watching the Burroughs bird feeders and sending their observations into the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We've already tallied seven species, the highlight being a bald eagle that flew right over the school while some of Mrs. Wold's kindergartners were on duty.

Researchers will use these young citizen scientists' data to learn more about bird populations and the health of the environment. You can learn more at www.feederwatch.org.

Registration Open for 4th- and 5th-Grade Winter Bird Club

We start this week, and there's still time for fourth and fifth graders to register for our bird club's winter session. We'll be playing games, doing experiments with feathers and eggs, building nests, creating our own bird species, and more. Come and join the fun! Contact Amy Simso Dean with questions.
