Shageluk school of birds

This is an interesting project, among others, that one of our Villages is doing. The first birds would be a nice complement to a bugs project. It’s not too late for first bugs.

Have a look.

  1. Shageluk has another interesting science story to report. Go school kids!! I wonder if the bird followed the open Arctic water?

    European finch shows up in Shageluk
    By Tim Mowry, Published November 1, 2007

    Shageluk schoolteacher Joy Hamilton has been teaching her students about the wonders of bird migration and the effect of global warming for more than a decade.

    But Hamilton and her students recently got a bird’s-eye view of how things can go astray in nature when a brambling, a common finch in northern Europe and Asia, showed up last week at Hamilton’s bird feeder in the small village on the Innoko River, about 350 miles southwest of Fairbanks.
