Hello fellow scientist! This month in Super Science Lab we learned all about birds. Thanks to the Bolingbrook Park District’s Hidden Oak Nature Center we were able to observe many cool resources. We looked at bird skulls, owl claws, and feathers. Then we used binoculars to do some real bird watching. At the end of the program we made bird feeders.
In case you missed it, here is how you can make the bird feeder from home:
- Aluminum pie pan
- Hole Puncher
- Yarn or string
- Bird Seed
Project: Bird Feeder
1. First you can decorate your pie pan. Make sure your decorations will be able to withstand the weather.
2. After your pie pan is decorated punch four holes near the top. The holes should be placed in four “corners” of the pan.
3. After the holes are punched place your string or yarn through the holes and connect them with a knot at the top. This will allow your bird feeder to hang from a tree branch.
4. When you are finished, place the bird seed inside your bird feeder and hang it on a tree. Then watch what birds come to feast!
