Classroom time will include review and discussion of our field trip results and significant bird happenings, both local and worldwide. Workshop activities and slide shows are included with opportunities for students to share both their photos and good ideas. Destinations and directions will be announced prior to outings.
Birds Of The Bay Area
Although the spring season is underway as our new quarter begins, we’ll review causes and results for migration, courtship and other seasonal activities of bird behavior. We will continue learning about body system functions such as the endocrine and nervous systems. Vocal and mechanical bird sounds will be demonstrated and linked to actions, including courtship antics, for both migrant and resident species such as chicken-like birds, water-birds, wrens, thrushes, warblers and sparrows.
