Birdwatching for Beginners
How do birds fly? What do fowls do first thing in the morning? And where do they migrate in the winter?
This workshop explores the beautiful world of birds. Together, we will get to know what characterizes this group and understand what sets birds apart from other animals.
After a general introduction to the friendly world of fowls, we will dive in and focus on phenomena like aviation, migration, and the sounds birds make. We will also learn about birdwatching by taking tours of the grounds at the Weizmann Institute of Science, which is a habitat for many bird species. The tours will focus on the principles of birdwatching as well as on using binoculars*.
*If possible, students are asked to bring their own binoculars
