|Adding black sunflower seeds|
to the bird feeder
Before heading off to Amazon Park on 4/17/15, the River Spies installed a bird feeder in the Edison Elementary garden. Over the next two months, we will be observing what bird species use the feeder and how quickly birds consume the black sunflower seeds.

Barbara then accompanied us on our bird survey at Amazon Park and helped the River Spies identify several species. The River Spies observed starlings and crows, spotted one Stellar's Jay, saw a Rufous Hummingbird going back and forth to the same cottonwood tree (nesting?), plus heard Black-capped Chickadees and Song Sparrows.
