Mr. Tateís science class went on a nature walk last Saturday at the local bird sanctuary, where they spent the day exploring the residents of the sanctuary and learning about the different creatures that lived there. At the end of the day, each student had to choose an animal or bird species that they had observed during the day and then write a report about it, which was due the following week. During their day of exploration, the students saw, not only a number of different varieties of nesting birds and ducks, but also a large variety of local wildlife that shared the sanctuary with the migrating birds. With the arrival of spring, many of the creatures at the sanctuary were caring for young and it quickly became a contest among the students to see who could spot the young babies first as they watched the wildlife go about their daily habits. Five boys in particular were very good at spotting the baby creatures, even when they were hidden away or camouflaged by their surroundings. Determine the full name of each of the best baby-spotters, the total number of babies that each has been the first to spot, and the animal or bird that each chose to write their assigned report on at the end of the day.
1. Derek, who didnít write about the beaver, found 32 babies, the most that one student found. Arnoldís last name wasnít Guard. Mattís last name wasnít Chisum.
2. Arnold didnít find as many babies as the boy who wrote about the red fox, but he found more than the boy whose last name was Delaney.
3. The boy whose last name was Chisum didnít write about the beaver. The boy whose last name was Guard didnít write about the blue heron.
4. The five boys, in no particular order, were the boy whose last name was White, the boy who wrote his report on beaver, the boy who saw 16 babies, Randy, and the boy who wrote about the blue heron.
5. Randyís last name wasnít March. The boy who found 19 babies wrote his report on the Canadian goose.
6. Spencer didnít write about the red-tailed hawk, but he found three more babies than the boy who did.
