ARMOUR, S.D. (AP) - Some kindergarteners from Armour have been recognized nationally for their knowledge about birds.

Kelly Preheim’s class of a dozen pupils has learned about more than 300 species.

The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/1CZEUY3 ) reports they also made a short video debunking the myth that young birds will be abandoned by their parents if touched by a human. That video took the grand prize in a contest held through Falcon Guides, which publishes books and guides regarding the outdoors and nature.

Besides new books, two visiting authors plan to visit the southeast South Dakota school on Tuesday: Stacy Tornio, editor of the “Birds and Blooms” magazine, and Ken Keffer, an environmental educator. They wrote “The Truth About Nature,” a book directed at the common myths regarding the outdoors.
