Room 4, after building bird feeders, got to take a look at some taxidermy birds from the San Diego Natural HIstory Museum. They learned about the adaptation of birds, the qualities, such as beaks, legs and feet, that help them survive in a particular habitat. Then the children went out into the garden to see what kind of birds were visiting.
They saw sea gulls (eating lunch garbage), grackles, pidgeons, morning doves, some small song birds, and some ravens. They drew what they saw in their garden journals.
