Math-Science Nucleus Class: Winter Birds @ Tule Ponds

Today our Math-Science Nucleus class met at the Tule Ponds in Fremont to learn about birds. We all got binoculars and set out on a hike around the ponds. We saw Double Crested Cormorants, American Coots, Canada Geese, Mallard Ducks, Scrub Jays, Crows, Pidgeons, Mourning Doves, and even mushrooms. After we got back to the lab, we examined bird feathers (and the difference in owl feathers) using basic microscopes.
