Bird Science Ideas

 

 

Bird Feeders

Hang a bird feeder near one of your windows. Watch the birds throughout the day.

Make bird feeders. Place suet in a 12 x 12 inch piece of netting.Roll the suet in birdseed. Place the seeded
 suet in the netting. Tie the four corners of the netting together and hang in a tree or outside a window ledge.

 

Grapefruit cup feeders

Place seeds in an empty grapefruit half. Place the feeder where children can watch.

 

Science Table

On the science table, provide magnifying glasses and feathers, eggs, nests.

     

Bird Nests

For most birds, nest-building supplies consist of whatever nature has lying around wood, grass,
 twigs, feathers, and fur. You can provide the birds in your neighborhood with easy-to-obtain nest
 fodder by stuffng a mesh onion bag with materials such as pet fur, colorful strands of cloth, bits
 of stuffing, hay, colorful yarn cut into short lengths, hair from your brush, or feathers from an
 old down pillow. (Avoid anything synthetic or sharp.) Snip a few large holes in the sack so
 birds can poke around, then hang it in a tree, ideally near a feeder so it will get noticed. In the
 coming weeks, be on the lookout for birds visiting the sack, then watch what trees they return to from
 the right viewpoint, you might even get to see your building materials being incorporated into the birds' nests.
