Feeding the birds

Care for the birds in winter is very important, as we can help them survive by supplementing their diet, providing safe shelter and clean drinking water. As the temperature drops and natural food becomes less available, this extra feeding support can often be the difference between life and death. Also by having bird feeders the children can observe them.

In this week’s activity children will:
  • Make a birdbath
  • Put out high-energy foods
  • Scatter seed in sheltered places around the school grounds.
  • Keep extra feeders for use in bad weather.
  • Make sure seed is accessible and dry
