Birdwatching can be done in any city, town or national park. Not only that, it is great way to learn about the world and spend time together. And if you're a homeschooler like us, then it can fit right into your science lesson! Here are some tips on birdwatching:
- Use a field guide for your region. The Audobon and Golden Books make great field guides for every region in the country.
- Read up and make a plan for what you want to spot.
- Bring a notebook or journal so you or your children can sketch the birds and write down characteristics about the birds and the locations that they were found.
- Be patient.
- Bring a backpack with a few snacks, water, binoculars, sunscree, and anything else you might need.
- Build the birdwatching into a day hike.
Celebrate National Bird Day on January 5th or any day of the year.
