Schoolyard Bird Blitz: Canadian Students Count Birds for Science
Wednesday July 10, 2019   |
The Schoolyard Bird Blitz nurtures studentís interests in birds.

During a student project that should inspire other schools and student to initiate similar birding-based projects in Canada and the United States, students from 30 schools across Canada participated in Bird Studies Canada’s Schoolyard Bird Blitz, an annual bird count that takes place in school yards in May. Students across Canada explored their school yard, identified and counted their local birds, and shared their results to help scientists monitor Canada’s birds. A total of 186 species of birds were identified by participating students in May!

Perhaps this project that nurtures young people’s interests in birds will inspire more teachers, students, and schools to initiate similar birding-based projects in the United States and Canada.
