The Celebrate Urban Birds bilingual (English & Spanish) kit includes everything you will need to participate in this exciting yet simple citizen-science project. Remember you do NOT need to be in the city to participate in this project—you can participate anywhere! You'll receive a welcome letter with instructions and a bird identification guide on the back. You’ll also get a silhouette poster with cool facts so that you can learn to identify birds by looking at their shapes, and an identification poster featuring the 16 focal species in a whimsical urban setting. We have lots of practical information on the back about threats to birds in cities, ways to create a bird-friendly green space in your neighborhood, and how to attract birds.
You'll also receive a data form and return envelope so you can record your observations and send them to the Cornell Lab. Each kit includes a Zero Means a Lot sticker to remind you to send in your observations even if you don’t see any birds, plus a packet of Lemon Queen Sunflower Seeds for you to plant to attract birds.
