Breck Birders have been watching birds on Breck School’s campus for the past three summers. We submitted to eBird checklists describing the different species and number of birds we noticed. We wondered if there were a significant difference in the number of birds we saw in 2011, 2012, and 2013. We found that there were 31 species recorded in 2011, 28 in 2012, and 32 in 2013. This supported the H3 hypothesis; there were more species observed in 2013 than in 2011 or 2012.
