      Any songs?

      Journey North is an educational website. They would like to receive reports on the following migrants:


      Barn Swallows

      Common Loon

      Bullock's Oriole

      Students Across the North America

      Over 6,000 schools, representing more than 300,000 students, participated in the Spring, 2001 Journey North Program. These students are from all 50 U.S. States and 7 Canadian Provinces.

      Track Wildlife Migration and Spring's Journey North
      The journeys of a dozen migratory species are tracked each spring. Students share their own field observations with classrooms across the Hemisphere. In addition, students are linked with scientists who provide their expertise directly to the classroom. Several migrations are tracked by satellite telemetry, providing live coverage of individual animals as they migrate. As the spring season sweeps across the Hemisphere, students note changes in daylight, temperatures, & all living things as the food chain comes back to life.

      Have you heard any Robin songs on territory? We'll appreciate whatever reports you are able to make including date of first song heard, location, and any comments.

      You can contact me promptly with the location and date or report directly to Journey North over the web. (Directions for direct report below.)

      Thanks so much and happy birding!
