Outdoor Hour Challenge

Red-Winged Blackbird

From the Archives and the Learning About Birds ebook

Our new house backs up to a river and that means we have a lot of birds that live along the river visiting our backyard and feeders. The red-winged blackbird is a daily visitor so we’ve had plenty of time to observe it up close. We hear it in the early mornings as the day is awakening.  This challenge is coming at just the right time for us to make a more formal study of this active black bird.

Use the ideas in the Outdoor Hour Challenge linked above or from the ebook. The suggestions will help you get started using the Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock to learn more and help your children get to know this fairly common bird.

What should you do if you don’t have any blackbirds to study this week? Pick another bird! There are lots of birds for you to choose from in the OHC archives: Outdoor Hour Challenges – Birds.
