More Birding!

The GALES Science Club participated in a birding outing at Turner's Creek, in conjunction with the Great Backyard Bird Count. This is our 3rd year of participation in this nationwide citizen science event. Our crew of 25 students and parents identified 20 bird species for entry into the ebird database during our 80 minute adventure. Many bald eagles were present, as well as a cooper's hawk, blue heron, barred owl and a red-bellied woodpecker. Great job by Joey Homyak for his tireless data collection.        
Birding at Galena Elementary!

Molly Bryden and her young male red-tailed hawk visited the Galena ES Science Club!  Thanks to Molly for sharing her experiences with this majestic animal.  Nancy Martin, President of the Kent County Bird Club, also joined us for some tips on birding and bird identification as our club readies for the Great Backyard Bird Count happening at Turner's Creek.  We celebrate lifelong learning and there is no better lifelong hobby as birding!
