Project Feederwatch at The Unquowa SchoolPosted by chandlerwiegand
Project Feederwatch began with 3rd grade this week! Students will have the opportunity to assist in documenting bird species that call our school grounds their home this winter. This data will directly help The Cornell Lab of Ornithology determine species diversity in our surrounding area and to help estimate the population and range for those birds that visit us. Our feeders will be filled weekly with both sunflower seeds and suet in an effort to introduce our students to a large variety of birds this season.
For our first feederwatch this week, the students assisted in locating and identifying a total of 5 species of birds including Black-Capped Chickadees, White-Breasted Nuthatches, Tufted Titmouse, Downy Woodpecker and even a House Finch. We’re off to a great start and I am excited to see what visitors we have next week!
