We always recommend the eBird website (ebird.org) from Cornell University as a great way to keep track of your homeschool bird observations. Not only will it help you learn more about the natural history of your local neighborhood, but your own contributed observations, when combined with others, will help build up a nationwide picture of changing bird populations.
eBird is now offering a free one-hour course on all the website’s features and how best to use them — just the thing to help make bird study a regular part of your homeschool:
If you’ve been interested in getting your students started with tracking their bird observations, this may be just what you need to get things underway. 🦅
What natural discoveries have you made in your homeschool lately? 😊
❡ Books in the running brooks: Our River Houses reference library (riverhouses.org/books) includes an excellent bird guide that would serve your homeschool well. Many other similar guides are also available — find one that’s a good fit for your family and take it with you on all your outings, whether far afield or just out to the backyard. 🦉
