For Letter J, we looked at the junco birds! Unlike last week, Esmeralda was not too interested in learning about them. We barely skimmed through the little that she would hold attention for. The only thing she liked was the sound clips. She did not even like the video. To find some information on the junco bird, Esmeralda and I looked at the Dark-eyed Junco page at All About Birds! When we looked at the map, we saw that the junco is a popular bird in the state we live in year-round. Here are some other things we learned:
- Total population is approximately 630 million!
- Takes 3-7 days to build their nests!
- Oldest recorded age is 11 years and 4 months old!
- Seed-eaters, primarily 75% of their year-round diet
- Across most of North America!
Maybe we will have more interest for letter K!
