The day before Halloween I got to visit a grade 1 class at St Anne School just around the corner from the Centre. Their classroom was awesome!! So many nature things and out their window you could see the little nature garden they created. They have also been busy building bee homes and planting trees and soon they will be adding bird feeders too!
We had a lot of fun teaching the students about the characteristics of birds and how bird beaks, and feet are designed for where they live and what we eat. Of course, they all loved me and thought I was adorable. They also were amazed at how I rub my beak on my perch after I eat a piece of meat. I thought this was a bit strange … it is how I clean my beak, like how you wipe your face after you eat.
