Shoebill Stork, Mackenzie Casto, Age 12
I think the Shoebill Stork ties into the theme of favorite birds because it is one of the most unique birds alive today. It is also one of the birds that many people do not know exist. A quick look at the Shoebill Stork will make you think you are in the Jurassic time period because it looks prehistoric and that why it is one of my favorite birds!
The Cranes, Elizabeth Guan, Age 9
It’s about cranes enjoying the Spring, back from migration.
Mouse Watch Out, Luca Nielsen, Age 10
This winter, I visited my grandparents in Germany. They live in an area where you can see many birds of prey and found this picture in a book, so I it.
