Outdoor Hour Challenge Hawk – Bird Study

Learning about hawks using the Handbook of Nature Study and the Outdoor Hour Challenge will prepare your family for the next time you encounter one of these majestic birds in person. We often spot hawks sitting on fence posts, telephone poles, and atop trees in the forest. They can be seen flying or soaring over the tree tops, making it necessary to have a little knowledge of what they look like from below in order to identify them.

The Outdoor Hour Challenge linked below has some wonderful resources for gaining the skills to make a hawk identification even from a distance.

Outdoor Hour Challenge – Hawk Bird Study (from the Autumn Nature Study Continues ebook)

Hawk Bird Nature Study @handbookofnaturestudy

I invite you to read the information and then share it with your children. Perhaps you can pick one of the hawks mentioned in the lesson and start with learning about one hawk. After you learn about that one, pick another hawk for another nature study session.

If you get overwhelmed by the amount of information about hawks, remind yourself that birding and bird watching can be lifelong activities.
