Feeding the birds
If you feed them, they will come. At least, Oregon State University researchers are hoping that’s the case with area hummingbirds. The university has tapped fourth-graders at Timber Ridge School, among students at other mid-valley schools, to hang feeders to help researchers collect data. Todd Bertwelt, an undergraduate in OSU’s College of Forestry, came to Timber Ridge in late April to explain the project.
