I have started a residency at an elementary school. We are exploring ideas on habitat and how to attract birds and insects to your school and back yard. Yesterday we made woven forms to present nesting material to the birds.
The students also made some lovely drawings. It's a very talented class and it was a pleasure to work with them. I also talked to the students about Bower Birds and they drew images of objects that would attract them to a human oriented bower. (I suggested chocolate, of course.) What did they come up with? Lots of flat screen televisions and cold, hard cash!
