Great Backyard Bird Count- YNC Style!

The Williams Lake Young Naturalists participated in the Great Back Yard Bird Count on February 16, 2013.  The weather was beautiful for a short walk led by birding enthusiast Cathy Koot:  8 species and 47 individual birds were sighted.  This is up from 4 species and 21 individual birds sighted last year.  Our results will be forwarded to Cornell University for inclusion in their international bird studies.
After the walk we made origami beaks to explore the functions of different beak shapes.

Alexis, Ella, Timu, Wayne and Jessabelle test out their origami beaks on different food types.
