Stacia Posted February 2, 2008 Share Posted February 2, 2008 We've done this in past years & it is quick & easy to do. The kids love participating, keeping track of the types of birds we see, etc.... This is a great science activity to do the weekend of Feb. 15-18. http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/ From their kids' page http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/kids "The Great Backyard Bird Count is for kids! The Great Backyard Bird Count (or GBBC) is an event that takes place over 4 days in February each year. It's very easy! All you have to do is watch birds in your yard, a nearby park, or maybe at your school. Then you tell us what you saw by entering your bird list online. We collect that information from people all over the United States and Canada so scientists can learn what kind of birds are being seen in the winter and whether there are more or fewer of them than before. Learn more about how to participate. You'll have more fun taking part in the Great Backyard Bird Count if you first learn about the birds you're most likely to see. We have some fun ways for you to become familiar with birds." Happy bird-watching! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
