Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge
Magpie Bird Nature Study
Magpie nature study week! Once you identify a magpie, you’ll never have trouble spotting it again. It has such a beautiful color pattern, and the tail is very distinct. This makes the magpie a perfect bird to study even with very young children.
The Outdoor Hour Challenge this week is officially the black-billed magpie but some of you might need to also look up information on the yellow-billed magpie.
Take some time to prepare for your magpie study by clicking the links below:
- Make sure to look at the range maps in a field guide or on All About Birds to determine if you might spot a magpie in your area.
- Here are some videos for you to watch in preparation: Magpie Song and Magpie Colors.
Please note that I will not be posting the complete challenge here on the blog, but you will find the detailed challenge in the Bird Nature Study Set #1 ebook that’s available both in the Ultimate Naturalist and Journey level memberships.
