Red-Tailed Hawk Up Close

We end posts about our bird unit with a view of the red-tailed hawk brought to visit Birches by a Mass Audubon interpreter. We have become very fond of red-tailed hawks, seeing them first in our garden last summer. See this blog from last July. Our bird unit was an example of student-centered or student-driven learning. The children wanted to learn more about birds, so we enlarged and deepened our curriculum in this area.
