Date of this Version



The material in this circular has been revised and updated to aid Nebraska 4-H bird clubs. It contains an outline of activities suitable for each month and descriptions of 58 birds. The descriptions of the birds have been arranged so that a few may be given special study each month. The objectives of the club are:

To learn the economic value of birds through a study of food habits.

To become familiar with Nebraska Laws that protect birds.

To learn to appreciate birds and encourage bird life on the farm.

To learn to describe a bird so that it may be recognized by others.
