Elm Fork urban bird activity lets parents, kids meet North Texas avians

American robinCelebrate Urban Birds, a Family Fun Science Day at the Elm Fork Education Center, begins at 10 a.m. Sept. 18 at the Environmental Education, Science and Technology Building.

Co-sponsor is the Environmental Arts Faculty Group.

The event, targeted at children age 4-13, is funded by a grant from Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which provides $250 to $500 to creative projects involving data collection about urban birds, outreach, conservation and the arts. The Environmental Arts Faculty Group was among 18 of 620 applicants that received funding.

Cost is $8 per child or $7 with a donation of a canned food item. Parents admitted free.

Participants will try to spot 12 species of birds selected from a list provided by the Cornell lab. David Taylor, a lecturer in the Department of English and member of the Environmental Arts Faculty Group, said the chosen birds — American robin, right, barn swallow, black-crowned night heron, brown-headed cowbird, Bullock’s oriole, house finch, house sparrow, mallard, mourning dove, peregrine falcon and rock pigeon as well as the crow and killdeer — live in the North Texas region almost all year and so are easy to see.

Participants will draw and write about the birds, about the birds, adding them to images to be   displayed in the building lobby and locations around Denton.
