Ornithology! That's what we're studying in merit class. Ornithology is the study of birds, so you could call our students amateur ornithologists!
Right now we're learning to identify a wide variety of birds that live right here in our area. We'll be learning all about their physical characteristics, diet, nesting, young, and even the recognition of many bird calls. And of course, we'll be learning lots of new vocabulary words along the way. It's going to be an awesome end-of-the-year study that will include bird-watching in the pecan grove, and even a field trip to Sardis Dam in May! More details to come!
