Bird study

Spotting birds and identifying their preferred food

Bird study
Learning objective

To recognise species using identifiable features and match them to a key.


During this 1-hour session, children, as young ornithologists, will learn how to recognise features that vary between birds and use an identification chart to identify birds. The class will also set up an investigation to identify which food different species of birds prefer. Observations will happen from one of our hides and around the ground.
