Kids are naturally curious and love to learn about birds because they hold a special fascination, they can fly!
Parents and teachers can help children learn about birds by taking them out to build a bird feeder. Children love to feed the birds outside in the garden.
And then it's so much fun to sit back and watch all the wonderful birds come over to feed. Making bird feeders with the kids is a great activity to get them outside and enjoying nature.
BirdsConTour shows a few ideas that you and your kids can enjoy.

The other thing parents and teachers can do is to encourage kids to build a bird house. Before and while building nests, one can do a little reading and explaining about birds and the purpose of a nest.

Building bird feeders and bird houses with kids is a great way to get kids engaged in bird conservation.
Thank you to all parents and teachers for all you do to turn kids into citizen scientists!
