This is not sports related but it's UTSA related:

You can help some fellow Roadrunners with their study of bird feeding habits.

They're looking for home owners living on the NW side of SA between 410 and 1604 to allow bird feeders to be set up in their backyards and to observe and count the birds.

The project will take place Oct-Nov of 2020 and 2021.

I guess my parents' house in Northeast SA would be out. They live fairly close to Madison HS. Their whole backyard is like a wildlife sanctuary though. They leave food out for birds, cats, squirrels, and have opossums and raccoons visiting also. Been doing that for many years now, and the variety of birds visiting has grown and grown. They also have a variety of blooming plants to attract bees. My dad even built a big birdhouse for purple martins, that sits high upon a pole. Cool thing is that a hawk will sometimes land in their yard because it gets attracted to everything heading there, and they can hear an owl sometimes at night also.

Nice.

Yeah, sounds like they're going to see how things go in a specific area and depending on the results they will see about expanding or moving the research.
