The campus grounds are a haven for many kinds of birds, from the very common Robin to the very rare Saw Whet Owl. The gardens provide all the necessary elements for good bird habitat: food, water and shelter. Throughout the years, the bird watchers on campus have had many unusual visits and have seen many old familiar friends of the feathered variety.
