Below are links to five days of work and birding during the program. Click here for a copy of our list of birds that we saw during the program.

Following the program at Hog Island the school children on Chebeague created their own Atlantic Puffin Movie

In the spring of 2014 our Chebeague Island School k-2nd grade class produced a movie about the Birds of Chebeague using green screen I promised to share:

Birds of Chebeague

In the fall of 2014 the Pre-K - 2nd graders produced a movie about migrating birds:

Migrating Birds of Chebeague

This Fall the 3-5 grade class will be studying 6 different seabirds including the Puffin and will be producing and creating six short video with the Pre-k - 2nd graders as the birds. We will be using Seabird Sues Puffin costume ideas and are looking forward to sharing our new movies.
