Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative

A cooperative partnership to deliver the full spectrum of bird conservation emphasizing volunteer stewardship.

Bird Monitoring Kits

The bird monitoring kits were developed to enable educators to introduce students to birds and their habitats while exploring the outdoors. Many people have becoming interested in birds and their conservation through seeing them, watching them, and learning to identify them. It is our hope that the provision of the tools for an introduction to birds and their habitats will lead more people to an interest in birds and, ultimately, concern for their conservation.

The kit contains the tools to help introduce birds to students, build skills of observing birds in nature, and help them gain knowledge about birds.

Each kit comes with the following:

  • 15 pairs binoculars
  • 1 spotting scope with tripod
  • 5 field guides
  • Posters
  • 1 bird placemat
  • 1 CD of common birds found in Wisconsin
  • 1 Educator’s guide
