Congratulations to the Minnehaha Academy Middle School students who were recently published in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's BirdSleuth Investigator, a nationally-published annual magazine: Zac, Will B., Signe, Elsie, Annika, Eli, Owen, Miriam, Chris, Will O., Nick, Arielle, Alison, Alex and Asa.

These student scientists conducted research, answering questions such as, "Were Bald Eagles more frequently found in Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park, Badlands National Park, or Glacier National Park in 2015?" and "How does the time of year affect the frequency of bird vocalizations in St. Paul, MN?"

They submitted creative writing pieces, including essays and poetry, as well as artwork depicting different bird species.

Congratulations, students, for your creativity and inquisitive research!
