Hi I am the president of the Finches. 1/9/21

“Hello. I am the president of the Finches. I know we all come in differnt shapes and sizes, although we are all the same… becuase we are all the same kind of species. I know we have been struggling with this whole “finches are the smallest common household pet.” We will get over this. This is hard to overcome, I mean we are only 4 inches in length and we are only softbill birds, if you know what I mean… because I don’t. Anyway, know that we are small and sometimes really, really, really fat. we are big in intelligence. As you all may know, the glodenfinches are flying south this week. Their first charm this year. For all our new comers a charm is a group of goldenfinches.

This is our nut free day. We need to keep the bullfinches’ voices ready to be trained to mimic the national anthem next week. Let’s hear a round of applause for them. Alright, that is enough. And for our lesser redpull finches, you guys really need to stop hanging upside down. Our hospitals can not keep up. Alright, alright, I know, I know. it’s “for fun”

I wonder why finches are so colorful? Why are Bullfinches the only type of finch that can be tought to mimic songs? How did people come up with the name finch?

Babirusa, thats me!!!!!!! 12/3/20

Hi my name is Amanda, I am a babirusa. some say that my tusks go into my head, but I am not saying that it is true or not. I mean, sometimes tusks grow onto my friend’s scull. (I miss them so much.) Anyway, my cousin lives next door to me and he won’t stop oinking. I mean, come on, we know you are a pig you, don’t have to brag. I can oink too. That doesn’t mean I am going to say that my oink is better then yours! He just goes on and on about how much he eats. He’s not the one that has a two chamber stomach. He says “Oh, Amanda, I eat everything except for my own kind, PIGS. (bacon)” Well I eat my own kind, even babies, in your face! He is so full of himself. Pig means pig. Babirusa means pig deer, but I don’t brag about it.

I don’t mean to brag, but I dig dig holes better then pigs. I mean come on, what pig that you know snorts while digging holes? Okay okay maybe you have met a pig that digs holes, but have you ever see a pig growl or spit sticky saliva stuff? (we also live in them.)

Unlike my cousin, my legs are small and dainty, I wonder why? Why do I have tusks that may or may not grow into my skull? Why do have that crown thing over their head?

11/15 Biome stufffffffff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello my name is Alison. I am a Siberian Musk Deer. I live in Taiga Biome in Siberia. Ooh I love talking about where I live. Okay ooh I know, well Siberia is in Eurasia. Eurasia in the middle of Europe and Asia. The weather is perfect here. The normal temperature of the taiga is 50°F. In the summer the average is 70°F. There is not much precipitation. There is only 13 to 33 inches annually. The one annoying thing is that the winters last for 6 months. Not that I don’t like winter,  but I also like summer. We don’t get much summer either so I love when summer comes around. We only get about 50-100 days of summer. Some people are a piece of work. I mean come on people, every one says “don’t cut down the trees” but know they don’t listen. The biggest problem in the Taiga is deforestation. COME ON PEOPLE!!!!!!!

 

Why am I who I am? Why is the world like it is, why isn’t it with slug people? Why did we come up sunglasses?

11/7 PANDA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, I am Elizabeth, I am a Giant Panda and 22 years old. Today, I gave birth to the most gorgeous baby panda ever. We don’t know the gender yet but I hope it’s a boy!!!!! The vets were all so worried about my baby because it is their first in a while. Let me think, what day is it? Oh, it is August 21. They just took my baby and weighed the cute thing. My baby is 100 grams, I am so excited! Let me tell you, they were so nervous during my 8 weeks of pregnancy, but now they are so relieved that my baby is healthy. Dr. Mei Xiang said that he is feisty. I totally agree. Yesterday, they where measuring my feisty baby and he barked at them and turned over!

Today, they announced what his gender is by showing a painting that Mei Xiang’s dad painted. I knew it. HE’S A BOY!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, they think that they get to pick a name for him. In a couple of weeks, they will come up with a name. I already have a name because everyone need a name, obviously. I named him: MISTER CUDDLE PANTS!! Okay, so the name needs a little work.

I wonder why their ears close. Why do baby pandas have thick claws. Why are they so cute?!!!!

Me I Thumper

Hello I am Thumper I am not so sure how to make a blog. The other day about 7 weeks And 6 days ago my babies were born. They are exhausting, I have been trying to ween them, gosh there they love milk. I remember the day that Lucy McLean and Julie and Molly took some of my babies and fed them with store bought bunny milk. They bought it because I did not have enough for them all to drink. They are huge now I can’t believe we are going to give them away soon. I will miss all there furry faces.

I wonder why they jump up in the air like lunatics. Why do they like to climb. Why do we all rock back and fourth when we sit down and are relaxed.

Hello this is Sandy 10/11/20

Hello my name is Sandy. This is my first blog ever. If it is not clear I am a mushroom. Yesterday I was visited by three girls. They looked at me then started drawing something on a piece of paper. Oh, I think they said something about Molly… and Analie… almost forgot Samma, or was it Emma, no it was Emma for sure. Then for some reason they took my sister, which I am still mad about. HEY IF YOU HAVE MY SISTER AND YOU ARE READING THIS, OH BOY, YOUR IN TROUBLE. Anyway they left soon after, I feel like a model. I heard that they were going to make presses out the mushrooms, what ever that means. I heard someone named Shane say that they didn’t work so maybe Shela will come back.

I wonder what the lines under my head are for. Why do I look like my oh so beautiful self. Do worms like me.

9/27 Owl Garden

These last few weeks, we have been working on two subjects. The two connect, one was owls (see my owl letter on my dashboard) and their adaptations. The other subject is organisms. We have been working on the hoop house to get the plants growing and healthy. 

We had to read 1 chapter and fill out a piece of paper. What I learned while reading is that we have a parasite in our eyebrows and eyelashes and other areas on our faces with hair. These parasites usually don’t do anything harmful. In really rare cases they make red itchy spots. I also learned what a niche is. It is like an ingredient. In order for an animal to live in one habitat, it needs a niche. Animals need food to survive. A squirrel need seeds and nuts to survive. These types of food are niches. Another niche is a shelter. Humans need shelter to survive. Without shelter we will die.

I really enjoy learning about organisms. There are so many different parts of them i’d like to learn more about.

Owl Letter

Dear Miss Cuttatree,

I have gotten some information about you. You know, not out of the ordinary kind of stuff. Here’s what I heard: You are a horrible person. Also I have written this letter to convince you not to cut down all of these trees for your resort. I mean, we have enough resorts. And you don’t want a bunch of owl pellets that your guests will step on, do you?. You and I both know that the first month of a business is the most important to make your customers happy. If that didn’t change your mind, maybe this will: My name is The long eared owl, but my friends call me Ears (by the way, don’t call me ears) and their nestlings call me Miss Long. You can call me Asio otus, for short, otus, if you will. Since you’re you and I’m me, don’t you dare make fun of my ears. They’re not really even ears, so don’t call me by saying, “oh miss big ears…” I won’t come. If you call me by yelling, “Hey yo, Tufts, get down here,” I might come down from terrorizing your guests. Oh, and my spots don’t they just make me look beautiful. Because I will be too busy making you miserable, I am going to be kind of lazy, so I am going to steal a hawk or a crows nest. Guess your bird watching group won’t be too happy–sorry. not sorry–although they will enjoy watching me (a 27 to 40 cm tall bird) swoop down and take all their gear. Oh, and when they think their luck is down, just wait for me and my babies to make noise at night. When the old people come back from the shuffleboard, they will sue you for giving them a heart attack from seeing a bird on their bed (although they could probably just lift me up as I weigh only 260g to 435 g). Girl, when you see me angry, you’ll wish that you hadn’t spent all that money on the uppity resort because my wingspan is 90-100 centimeters. Seriously, look at my face. 

 

By the way, I have been spying on you. But I won’t tell you how… oh, ok, fine, I’ll tell you. Well, I use it on all predators: raptors, eagles, hawks, you. I fly onto a tree, then I sort of spread out, and then I flatten my belly so that it looks like I am a tree limb. But then I usually get distracted, (because you’re so mean) and I go and get dinner. My dinner is usually voles, kangaroo rats, deer mice, snakes, or lizards. Wait, sorry, I got off track. Now, let’s get down to business. If you cut down these trees, all of the animals that live in them will die. If you are wondering what any of this does to you, well, here it is: If you cut down all of these trees then what you will have for dessert is rats and mice, things that the owls and other predators dependent on the trees eat. These  animals keep the rodent population down. That’s why you shouldn’t cut down forests for your resort!
