For our lab outing, we went bird watching at Fenner Nature Center and had a lot of fun. We saw and/or heard 40 bird species (highlights were a Scarlet Tanager, Baltimore Oriole, Indigo Bunting, Magnolia Warbler, Bay-breasted Warbler, American Redstarts, Cedar Waxwings, and a Wood Duck with ducklings). Christina created a bird bingo, which was a great success. Elie won the first round of bird bingo and Katie won the second round. Thank you Jen, Allie, and Parks from Michigan State Bird Observatory for allowing us to borrow 11 binoculars!
