Jr Ornithologists at Duke Farms

Join a Duke Farms educator to learn why Duke Farms is For the Birds! During these sessions, Junior Ornithologists will gain an understanding of what makes birds so unique and fascinating. Through games and classroom activities, we will explore the life histories of birds and delve into topics such as bird biology and adaptations for flight, behavior, diets and habitats. We will learn to use binoculars and field guides and will go outside to see what our feathered friends are up to throughout the year.

March 24: Spring Migration; Flight and Feathers

Many birds flew the coop for the winter, but they begin to return with the first signs of spring. Families will learn all about bird spring migration. We will learn how a bird is adapted for long flights and take an in depth look at feathers and features that make flight possible.

April 28: Tweets and Twitters/Bird Communication

May is the time when birds become very vocal and even noisy as they establish territories and search for mates. We will explore bird communication as well as mating and nesting. Put your cell phones away as we listen for the live tweets, twitters and songs of the birds of spring.
