Village School Mockingbirds

Christina Zhang


Toby Hatten, Village School science teacher, discovered a beautiful feat of nature a couple of days ago. What started as hearing little squeaks to following a mother mockingbird bring food to her babies, the science class found a nest of four baby birds newly hatched. The birds were identified as grey Northern Mockingbirds. These species of birds are usually characterized by two white stripes on their wings.

It is predicted that these birds will probably stay here during their lifetime. Northern Mockingbirds are native to where the baby birds hatch. The birth of these birds are the first of it’s kind in Village history. In a couple month’s time, the birds will learn to fly, and if you take a moment to look, you may see them flapping from the trees, as part of perfect spring scenery.
