The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God, and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

I’m a Daisy Poem
I'm a Daisy standing tall (stand tall)
I'm a Daisy, friend to all
  (hold hands out palm up covering the person to either side)

I'm a Daisy, helping every day
(hold the hand of the person next to you by just turning over your palm)

Living my life in the Girl Scout Way (raise hands held together above head.)


Friendship song
Make new friends, but keep the old.
One is silver, the other is gold.

Make new friends, but keep the old.

One is silver, the other is gold.


A circle is round, it has no end.

That's how long, I’ll be your friend.


*Make new friends, but keep the old.

One is silver, the other is gold.


*Make new friends, but keep the old.

One is silver, the other is gold.

*Sung in a round between

Great American Backyard Bird Count February 13-16th

1. Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, February 13–16, 2009. You can count for longer than that if you wish! Count birds in as many places and on as many days as you like—one day, two days, or all four days. Submit a separate checklist for each new day. You can also submit more than one checklist per day if you count in other locations on that day.

2. Count the greatest number of individuals of each species that you see together at any one time. You may find it helpful to print out your regional bird checklist to get an idea of the kinds of birds you're likely to see in your area in February. You could take note of the highest number or each species you see on this checklist.

3. When you're finished, enter your results through their  web page. You'll see a button marked "Enter Your Checklists!" on the website home page beginning on the first day of the count (February 13, 2009). It will remain active until the deadline for data submission on March 1, 2009

4. Please email  Wendy after submitting your results. Those who participate will earn a bird watching patch at the June 5th awards ceremony. I must know by February 18th as we are participating in this with the Boy Scouts as well.  Those who do not report their results will not qualify for the patch.
