Eco-Activity: Go Winter Bird Watching!

8

Have you ever heard the sound of birds chirping in the winter? We know many birds fly south when it gets colder, but some stay put. For today’s Eco-Activity, see if you can find some signs of these winter-loving birds! 

Instructions

Step 1: Make a chart like the one below so you can keep track of what you see and hear. It’s a good idea to leave some extra spaces so you can add any other signs of birds you see, like a nest. 

Step 2: Grab a pen, and head out into your local forest or nature area. Make sure to dress warmly (wool socks are a good idea)!  

Step 3: Make a note of how many times you hear a bird, see a bird, or see signs of a bird. Bonus points if you can identify what kind of bird you saw! 

Take some photos of your winter bird watching adventure and share them with us on social media!
