Bird is the Word!

Check out the pictures of the “Bird is the Word” project, which was completed by students of 5th (Ms. Biesty) and 6th (Ms. Walsh) class, and was displayed at the RDS Primary Science Fair earlier this month.

For three weeks students monitored and recorded bird activity in the school garden three times daily. Initially there was no food provided for the birds and then we added peanuts during week 2 and seeds during week 3. We attracted a large variety of birds to the garden including greenfinches, chaffinches, goldfinches, magpies, blue tits and sparrows. The most common visitor to our garden was the chaffinch and during the 3rd week we logged over 200 birds!

We displayed our project as part of the RDS Primary Science Fair and you can now see it displayed in the halla!
