The Reason Our Birds Are So Happy!

When the bird houses we created fell apart our wonderful Greg made a plan with the children to build stronger bird feeders for our little friends.

He began at home using a very powerful saw to cut pieces of wood.
He made sure to wear safety goggles.
Greg matched all the pieces he cut to each of the bird feeders the children would build.
Then he brought the home made bird feeder kits to the wonderful world of kindergarten!
 
Greg worked with the children as they built their bird feeders.
They looked at pictures and instructions of what the bird feeders would look like 
and the steps to follow to make them.
  
        
  
Greg helped the children and the children helped each other.
 
So many hungry birds,
So many children helping...
 
One bus driver extraordinaire!
 
Children signed the bottom of the birdhouses they had worked on.
The looks on their faces told us everything about how they felt 
about the work they had accomplished.
It was time to make the birds very happy!
Greg helped to put the bird feeders in the trees.
 
He used strong wire to make sure they wouldn't fall in stormy weather.
The bird feeders are filled with bird seed for our local bird population.
We watch them as they come and go.

What birds do you see in your yard?
In your park?
In your neighbourhood?
In your city?
When you travel?
Enjoy this video of Windsor Essex Pelee birds from Point Pelee National Park.
Do you recognize some of these birds?


A big chirpy THANK YOU is sent to Greg, our bus driver extraordinaire
for helping us to make our birds so happy that they sing their song of thanks!
