Looking for a motivational project for your students. SciStarter is a great resource for citizen science projects for your students. The project of the week is Hummingbirds at Home.
Hummingbirds at Home is a brand new citizen science initiative from Audubon. The project will help scientists understand how climate change, flowering patterns and feeding by people are impacting hummingbirds.
On the Hummingbirds at Home website you can track, report on and follow the spring hummingbird migration in real time. And, a free mobile app makes it easy to report sightings, share photos and learn more about these remarkable birds.
You can participate at any level – from reporting a single sighting to documenting hummingbird activity in your community throughout the life of the project. Help us document the hummingbirds journey and direct change in the future to ensure these incredible birds do not disappear.
Think about how wonderful it would be to have your students set up feeder stations, observe, and collect real data that will be used by scientists!
