Flanking her were Paul Wise and Brandon Dorr, also 9. The three fourth-graders from St. Rose of Lima School in downtown Baltimore were visiting Kinder Farm Park as part of a school field trip.

Now others can see what all the squawk is about by joining members of the Anne Arundel Bird Club on Oct. 10 in Kinder Farm Park in Millersville for the 11th annual "Big Sit!"
