Bird-Watching Projects for Kids

Get Close Bird-Watching Project

Prove you can watch without wounding in the Get Close Bird-Watching Project.

What You'll Need:

  • Ruler

Can you get close to birds without disturbing them? Why not take a summer to find out? Watch your yard to find out where birds like to gather. First, watch them from your house, talking softly as you look. Then, move outside, but stay close to your house, again talking very softly. Move just two feet closer each day, being careful to sit still and make no sudden movements. How close can you get to your feathered friends? If you're patient, you might be surprised.

Keep reading to learn how to "collect" birds without having to capture a single one.
