Description:

In this outdoor activity, learners turn the fun of feeding wild birds into an investigation of bird behavior. Learners feed pigeons, ducks, jays, sparrows or sea gulls, exploring which kinds of food different birds prefer, whether birds can find food in a cup or under a cloth, and how some birds in a group get more food than others. Learners are also asked to consider how human feeding changes a bird's behavior and could affect bird and other animal populations.
