The Normal Herald, Vol. 24 free pdf Excerpt from The Normal Herald, Vol. 24: Indiana, Pa-, July, 1919 Miss Sulis, Critic Teacher in the Training School, returns to us next fall after a leave of absence for study at Columbia University. Miss Sulis has written most enthusiastically about the work which she has done the past year. She has many plans for the new school year and Indiana will profit greatly by her renewed enthusiasm, - her new vision and splendid, new ideas. Bird Study in the Model School Students and student activities have not been the only attraction on the Normal campus this term. About seventy-four species of birds have been observed and they are constantly attracting the attention of bird lovers. Of course the English sparrow stayed with us all winter and the robins came in February. Early in the season a flock of about 200 gold finches was seen near the campus and some of these pretty little singers may be seen and heard any day. The wrens and sparrow family are old residents and much at home. Chipping sparrows, white-throated sparrows and fox sparrows are frequently seen, while the song sparrow is the joy of this whole region. The red-headed woodpeckers stayed all winter and early began their noisy housekeeping plans. A large number of flickers are nesting on the campus. Just look for the chips from their houses, spy their round doorways and see if they won't look out and say, "Howdy!" The yellow-bellied sap-suckers are also here. The eat birds arc delightfully tame and most enchanting in their pert mockery. They are nesting here, as are also two pairs of purple grackles, a pair of Baltimore orioles and a pair of little doves. The gracklers are entertaining, but scarcely welcome. A great flock of chimney swifts sleep in the chimney of Leonard Hall. Many an "old grad" will recall with pleasure their swift, graceful flight at sunset before they settle down to sleep. Whip-poor-wills, night hawks and screech owls have been observed recently, while the country just outside of town has meadow larks, brown threshers, king birds, chee winks, Maryland yellow throats, blue birds and red winged black birds. One enthusiast had the luck to see a cardinal. The children of the Model School have, of course, taken advantage of this splendid opportunity for bird study and already are quite expert in their knowledge. The Audubon charts show fifty-two species, and children have tried to see them all before the end of the season. Some of the pupils have reported over thirty. The children of the Fifth and Sixth grades have made bird books in the drawing class and listed the harmful and benecial birds.
