Bird Watch


Bird Watch

In this group or individual activity, learners are encouraged to watch birds near home or school—possibly where birds are nesting in a tree, pecking in a park, feeding from a feeder, or flying through the sky. The PDF provides drawings of the heads and bills of many kinds of birds, under categories including nectar feeding, mud probing, dip netting, scavenging, and raptorial.
