Great Backyard Bird watch

- We had no samples for the SW (South West) region of the USA.
- We made a hypothesis that there would be more birds in the south. However; we had many birds in the north. This is because Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jim feed the bird and the food attracted them. We will post some pictures of the Saginaw Birds in another post.
- This was not a good experiment design because we did not have the same number of respondents in each region of the USA.

Great Backyard Bird Watch

We participated the Great Backyard Bird Watch "Lapain Style" today...meaning that we put some seed in the feeder and kept watch with camera and
binoculars. We saw one bird and I think it MIGHT be a Blacked Capped Chickadee. We are just not bird people so are not sure.... Andrew then drew this illustration of the bird. If we see more today we will post that as well. Please let me know what you find! We will look at the results and post our own thoughts and findings! Notice the snow on the top of the birdhouse!
