Bird Science Ideas
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.
On the science table, provide magnifying glasses
and feathers, eggs, 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.
