Birds, Examining Your Environment.
MacBean, John C.; And Others
Designed to provide new and different ways of observing birds rather than simply identifying them, this book attempts to develop skills for how to look at birds. Activities in each of the four sections, "Live Birds,""Birds' Eggs,""Birds' Nests," and "Dead Birds," are specifically planned to get one involved with birds in their natural environment. Narrative material suggests procedures for carrying out the activities and asks several probing questions regarding the subject being studied. Numerous colored pictures, charts, and diagrams stimulate interest and serve to enrich the written material. Studies range from the flight patterns of birds and incubating eggs to materials used in bird nest construction and displaying parts of a dead bird. Students will find the many activities in this guide allow for year round study of birds and their habits and require only simple equipment easily obtained. (BL)
