Birds are a part of nature people can observe in almost every part of the world. Bird watchers, or “birders,” can learn to identify them by color, song, markings, shape, and flying patterns. Learning about birds and identifying them in the wild can become an entertaining science hobby, and “Birds and Birding” is an excellent first step. Part of the “Backyard Science” series. When children play in their backyards, they get a first glimpse of the wonders of nature through encounters with all sorts of small creatures. Produced by Norman and Marjorie Bean, the “Backyard Science” series offers a fascinating introduction to natural science.
