Ms.Smith’s fifth grade class took part in a bird feeder challenge as part of their Life Science Unit. “It was really fun to make the bird feeders and it was cool to see the birds fly to the bird feeders and eat the feed,” said one student. “This project made me feel excited and happy for our bird friends and all the students at New Garden because they will all get to benefit from this and learn something new and scientific,” stated another student. Some of the most frequent visitors were the bluebird, the dark-eyed juncos, and the red-winged blackbirds. The students also saw cowbirds, cardinals, blue jays, sparrows, and other birds native to our area.
