For the birds …

For the past six years, Mary Cunningham, who works at the U.S. Forest Service office in Meeker, has celebrated International Migrating Bird month by taking Meeker Elementary School students on field trips to watch and spot birds in the area. Cunningham said a grant from “More Kids in the Woods,” provided 25 pairs of binoculars for the program. Pictured are Cunningham and several fifth-graders looking at one of 16 different birds they spotted in Town Park.
