How often do you see many different species of birds flying through the sky together all at once ? Maybe on the day Nature Canada organized the Ottawa Bird Day parade!
Around 60 students from the Centennial Public School got creative and made puppets of many different species of birds to bring on their walk along the Ottawa River, along with masks they made to match their winged friends, and started their journey.
These energetic birds ranged from a Red-Throated Hummingbird to an American Goldfinch, a Grey Goose and so much more!
Once they reached Bate Island, located in the Ottawa river, they stopped for a quick snack of sunflower seeds. Once their “bird feeding” was finished, they grabbed their garbage and recycling bags and started to clean up and help keep the wildlife area clean.
When all was clean, the hard-working students hopped on the bus back to school.
It was a very fun-filled, educational day.
