Lessons as a part of the campaign "Feed birds in winter".
During November in schools of the Pskov region, the environmental education department staff kept lessons on wintering birds. Lessons were held as a part of the "Tomtit Day" campaign.
During lessons, children listened with interest to amazing stories about birds that do not fly to warm regions, played themed quizzes and participated in making bullfinch origami. Employees of the reserve together with children discussed that winter is a difficult time for birds, and at this time of year they die more often not from cold but starve to death. As it turned out, children are actively involved in the life of the birds. They brought at classroom self-made bird feeders of improvised material, and then hung them out near their homes and on the school grounds.
We watch birds around so often that do not think about how the world would change if they disappeared.
To prevent it, let's all together help birds to survive in winter, and in warm season they will thank us with their singing!
