Reviewer Comments:

This resource includes excellent hands-on activities in which students describe habitats and practice observing and recording birds. Extension activities suggest reporting bird counts or investigating comparative questions. The resource includes a simple worksheet students can use to record their data. There is reference to some specific, but unexplained, background resources, including Flying WILD (http://www.flyingwild.org/), Forests of Washington (http://ee.wfpa.org/EE/WFPAEE/FOW/) and NatureMapping activities (http://depts.washington.edu/natmap/education/protocols/). Overall this resource contains excellent ideas and starters, however, a teacher would need to spend some preparation time to best develop these activities for use in the classroom.
