Project FeederWatch comes to the HMS Library


 Merry Stuhr brought us up to date on the latest innovation in our Wonder-Filled Library:


As Merry's photos demonstrate, our students love this new addition to the library!
Thanks to our PTO, and Kellie McMahon, HMS has begun the citizen science project through Cornell Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University! 

HMS students who visit the library and wish to participate are recording their observations, which will be submitted to Cornell. FeederWatch data help scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. 

  
Kellie McMahon, 8th grade science and math teacher, was  instrumental in helping to get this project off the ground. Thank you, Kellie! 

Please enjoy this very special video taken by Sam Polstein, 8th grade student:
