Pendleton - Students at Friendly Flock Preschool have been learning about birds through the eyes of many different subjects, and teachers said their year-long study is coming to a close.

“We started this bird project in September,” Teacher Jennifer Mabrey said. “And we’ve been learning about birds ever since.”

Mabrey said the students started their bird project with a special trip out in nature.

“Our kick off was at Mounds State Park,” Mabrey said. “The kids were able to observe birds in their natural habitat.”

She said the park, in addition to offering the children a chance to see birds outside in nature, also have an indoor observational room.

“It was so neat,” Mabrey said. “The kids loved it.”

Since then, Mabrey and lead teacher Britney Olsen have been attempting to include birds in all subject matter at the First United Methodist Church preschool.
