Many of you have read and commented on my earlier post about our 4th grade bird watching project. We really appreciate your support.
On Friday, we saw a new bird outside our windows. It made it's third appearance today, and we were finally able to get a close enough look to identify it. We now have COMMON GRACKLES feeding on the wall ouside our room. Our birdcam has not caught a picture of yet, but we're hoping it will soon. Today we have the camera aimed at a hanging feeder, and not the wall.
This is the third year I've fed birds, and the first year we've ever seen a grackle. I can't wait to see if we will have any other new birds before the school year is over!
Our list for this year includes: House Sparrows, Chickadees, Mourning Doves, Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpeckers, House Finches, Song Sparrows, Cardinals, Slate-colored Juncos, Crows, Goldfinches, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Starlings, White-throated Sparrows, Robins, Eastern Towhees, Brown-headed Cowbirds, Chipping Sparrows, Blue Jays, and Common Grackles.

Professionally i design video hardware. I always have prototype hardware laying around. Getting you a dvr, four cameras, and support hardware would be trivial. Then you could get coverage across all that new landscaping!

Had to share! Just got a call from a landscaper who saw the article about our birding project in the local newspaper on Monday. She wants to donate some bird-attracting plants for our hillside to attract a wider variety of birds.
Hmmm Do I sense a botany project begining too? Wow I'm sure you can feel the excitement of the folks here!! I certainly can...
