Free Bird Cam Webinar
It’s that time of year again! The Red-tailed Hawks are laying their eggs and before long the Great Blue Herons will hopefully be back on the pond, arranging their nest for the breeding season. From watching a pair of birds building a nest to seeing the little chicks eventually take flight, Bird Cams are captivating thousands of people with a “bird’s eye view” into this amazing process.
While kids love watching chicks hatch and develop, educators love seeing their students enthralled. That’s why Bird Cams are popular among classrooms. To help educators make the most of the Bird Cams, we are offering a webinar for educators to learn everything they need to know to guide students through this virtual bird watching experience. Join us this April, at the peak of the Bird Cam season, for this exciting new webinar.
Around mid-April we expect the hawk chicks to have hatched, the herons to be tending to their eggs, and the Albatross chick to be merrily growing (expected fledge date approximately mid-July). In this webinar you will learn which cameras to watch and when throughout the year, information about nesting birds and chick development, and where to find a wealth of educator resources . Both webinar dates will include a special guest: – Bird Cam Project Leader- Charles Eldermire. Charles will join us to share some of his favorite moments from the Cams and to answer related Q&A. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
