Welcome to the Idaho Bird by Bird Program!

We believe bird feeding and watching are perfect means for connecting our youth with nature, which has many life-long benefits.

We also know that birding instills a healthy respect for our natural resources, ultimately leading to strong sense of place, stewardship of habitats, and dedication to wildlife heritage.

That is why we created an educational program called “Bird by Bird.”

Kathryn Albertson's Field Trip

Brrrr! It was cold, but the rain held off!  We saw more than 15 different types of birds and learned some new bird facts from Ms. Ware!  We played Migration games, made our name out of nature, and played Birdie Bingo.  We are graphing the birds we saw and each learned something new today!  Great day for birding!

Spring has sprung!

Second Annual Kuna High School Bird Festival

Friday May 5th the first graders from Crimson Point Elementary came over the the high school for the second annual bird festival. The ornithology classes put the festival on, student groups of 3 or 4 took first grade students through games that were fun but also taught a lot about birds. We also had two falconers join us with their birds, a kestrel and prairie falcon. As you can see from the photos the falcons were a big hit. The festival went very well and I am very proud of all my students.
