Chebeague Island, ME, United States
The video was created to teach others about the birds the students studied. Each student learned the calls and a local year-round bird. They made a mask, nest, sculpture, and then shared some information in a video in which they used a green screen so they could fly around their island. They took their information and the video and shared it with the community. They went to the assisted living home, the Ladies Aid, School Program and even the local Audubon Society. They posted the video online and have had over 1500 different people view it. In the Fall the plan is to do a similar video with migratory birds and fly their routes of migration.
This video and study has turned a whole community as well as the children into avid bird watchers and enthusiasts.
