Bird ID

I know you enjoyed our Bird ID program with Ms. Helena.  I don’t want us to stop looking for birds around our everyday lives and trying to figure out what each bird is named.  I found this great Audubon site.

To go along with our unit, and that the fact that we are experimenting on household chemicals to see what is an acid and what is a base, I thought this game  would be fun.

Great American Backyard Bird Count coming soon!

1. Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more 
days of the count. 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 of each species you see on this checklist.
3. When you’re finished, enter your results through our web page. You’ll see a button marked “Enter Your Checklists!” on the website home page beginning on the first day of the count. It will remain active until the deadline for data submission. (We’ll let you know when that is for 2012.)
