45 minutes -1 hour
Learn about the amazing basics of birds. Covered in feathers, these egg layers build nests and use many different habitats. Learn about their habits and life cycles in this presentation. Students will be able to identify several backyard birds and their calls through this interactive program.
1 - 1 ½ hours
"Travel" like a bird on a migratory route to your winter home and back again while learning about the hazards that birds may face along the way. Using maps learn about flyways, distances traveled and why some birds travel in V-formation. Investigate how other birds survive the winter too. (Outside or large indoor space required for activity.)
Geography of Birds
Grades: 3 -6
Students participate in a interactive quiz on state symbols which clue us in about the plants and animals that live in the different regions and states. Learn all about the 50 states and the process for picking each state bird. Learn what makes these lovely little creatures so unique in this entertaining tale of birds. Listen closely so you don't miss any details revealed on this wide account of birds from around the world, and the weird, wacky and wonderful habits of birds.
BAS AT MCWANE SCIENCE CENTER'S NATURESCOPE
Our Education Director will also be presenting programs at McWane Science Center's new NatureScope stage. NatureScope is a partnership exhibit between McWane Science Center and Birmingham Audubon Society and features a new Audubon cabin and a demonstration stage where visitors can enjoy bird and nature programs. Also housed in the exhibit area are collections of Alabama birds including a Bald Eagle, Wild Turkey, two, extremely rare, Ivory-billed Woodpeckers, and even a skull from the extinct Dodo Bird. Check the McWane Science Center program schedule for times and dates. Current NatureScope programs offered by Birmingham Audubon Society are "Common Bird Songs" and "Fit Feathers".
