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.  This project was funded through an NSF grant to College of Forestry professor Matt Betts, who partnered with ONREP for the broader impacts part of the grant.
