Miss Barb prepared the class for a lesson on bird parts and how bird parts are used to name some birds. Our first task was to label a bird using correct names and vocabulary. Miss Barb discussed how each part is used and what to look for when identifying different birds or male and females of a species.
For the conclusion of the lesson students were given pictrues of birds and asked to name them given the distinctive coloration markings and their placement on the birds body. It was fun to listen to all the different names that they came up with, and seeing how many names they knew.
The last slide was of a Yellow-rumped Warbler, and they all yelled out, "Butter-Butt!" I believe this is the class favorite! What an impression our bird banding field trip has left on these young birders.
