Lesson 5: Observing Seasonal Expression of Migratory Behavior in Pine Siskins
The purpose of this lesson is to teach students how to observe migratory bird behavior, using videos of Pine siskins (Spinus pinus) in a laboratory setting. Students will learn how to apply the scientific method to make predictions, observe behaviors, collect data, formulate questions, test hypotheses, draw conclusions, and communicate findings.
