Let's Go Birding! - Student Resources
Take this booklet outside to take notes as you listen and look for the common song birds that we learned about in the Let's Go Birding video series. You can also watch for birds through a window as you complete the coloring activity and word search.
This reading for grades 6-8 highlights 10 common songbird species of the St. Croix Riverway. Some of these species have variable coloration of their feathers depending on the time of year, the age of the bird, or whether the bird is male or female. Read about the interesting phenomenon of sexual dimorphism in birds and then test your skills of bird identification by playing a species matching game.
