After watching this clip, children can make bird feeders by sticking sunflower seeds around apples and hanging them from trees. Using bird spotting cards, children can go on a bird hunting trail in their local area. This clip may also inspire children to develop and put plants in the school garden. A further activity could be for children to make their own bird spotter display by drawing different birds in the local area.
