    A Fascinating Feet lab explores the different kinds of feet birds have. Webbed, perching, climbing, feathered and talon feet are discussed. This lab is best suited for younger students. Worksheets are available.

    The Winter Birds of Kachemak Bay lab is better suited for older students (5th grade and up). This lab focuses on 8 birds commonly observed at bird feeders throughout Kachemak Bay in the winter time. The habitat, food preferences and both behavioral and physical adaptations are discussed. Worksheets are available.
