What is your research question? Where do migrating birds rest or feed in Illinois? Resting grounds for migrating birds are: Illinois River valley Southern Illinois lakes Illinois and Mississippi river Grass Lank in northeastern Illinois Original quote: “Animals in Illinois include beavers, deer, gray and red foxes, minks, muskrats, opossums, rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, and skunks. Game birds include ducks, geese, pheasants, and quail. One of the major feeding and resting grounds for wild ducks in North America is the Illinois River valley. There, about 2 million ducks may fly in during the spring and fall migrations. Several hundred thousand Canada geese spend the winter at bird sanctuaries and lakes in southern Illinois. The state also provides waterfowl sanctuaries along the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, and at Grass Lake in northeastern Illinois” (Illinois, Animals).

Slide 5

Rewrite your notes in your own words without looking at the original. Be sure you are not just rearranging or replacing words. Rewrite the phrase in your own words and credit the original source. Double check what you have wrote by comparing it with the original writing. This slide excerpted from: Lorenzen, Michael. “Plagiarism PowerPoint Presentation,” 2003.
