A Bird Field Study at Coon Rapids Middle School - A

Faith K, Joella W, Marissa S, Dulce G

Our field study showed more bird activity in the morning at Peppermint Stick Park near Coon Rapids Middle School.  The average number of birds in the morning was 21; the average number of birds in the afternoon was 5. The difference of 16 is more than four times; therefore, the alternate hypothesis of more in the morning was supported.  Although our study was done in the fall at a different park in Coon Rapids, we found similar results to the U of MN 2015 bird field study done in July, where there were more birds in the morning than the afternoon. This may be due to higher bird body temperatures, increased noise in the afternoon, or possibly other factors affecting the birds in the area.
