Did you know the number of birds in an environment is a great indicator of how healthy the ecosystem is? Birds aren't just pretty plumage and sweet songs, they pollinate, disperse seeds and keep insect populations in check.
Room 1 & 2 brainstormed the Auckland garden birds that we know. We talked about our experiences with birds.
Next we turned on our super powers of observation and went out to find evidence of birds in our school environment. We found feathers, a nest, saw some birds and found poop. We concluded we could definitely do with more birds about.
Next week we're going to research local bird species and how we can attract them into school.
