National Simultaneous Storytime of Bowerbird Blues – Wednesday 22 May

We joined in for the National Simultaneous Storytime of Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker on Wednesday, May 22nd. Our school was one of 21,969 locations to participate, and our F-6 students were part of the 2,359,147 students/children participated at these locations. Mrs Boyd also shared about a bowerbird that nested in her front yard in 2021 during one of the many lockdowns we had that year. Mrs Boyd’s husband set up an action sensor camera in the garden and captured the bowerbirds adding blue items to the nest and even several birds in the nest at once. We shared with the children that when they see collections of blue items as they are walking in the bush to look for the nest that will be set up to impress the female bowerbird.
