  • The AFSA Bird Nerds is a birding team/club open to all students at the high school!

    We meet and practice on Thursdays from April to the end of the school year and also compete in an annual competition. 

    For the past four years, our team has competed in the Earth Day Birding Festival at the Carpenter Nature Center in Hastings. The Earth Day Birding Festival is held on the Saturday closest to Earth Day each year. The competition is to find and correctly identify, without help, as many different bird species as possible from dawn until 3:30 pm. In spring 2019 the AFSA Bird Nerds found and correctly identified over 50 species!
