Winter Birding (Grades 3-8)
Not all birds leave Minnesota for the winter. Some stick around all season long and somehow make it through those frigid days and nights. Find out which birds are adapted to Minnesota winters what those adaptations are that help them survive. Students will learn how to use binoculars, look for birds, and identify birds. We will keep track of the birds we see and record them through a citizen science project through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (www.ebird.org). This program is great for beginning birders and more advanced birders who want to pick up a few tips for identifying local birds.
Bring your own binoculars if you have them. There will be a few pairs to borrow. When you register, please indicate if you need to borrow binoculars.
Be prepared for being outside for more than hour. Dress appropriately for the weather.
