Anyone who attempts to recognize birds by sight alone misses one of the pleasures that comes to those who have taken the time to learn bird songs. Anyone interested in birds can learn to identify the songs of the most common birds. This can be done by listening or making tapes of bird songs. It can also be done by using a method called Mnemonics.
In this lesson students will learn about mnemonics and will try their hand at creating mnemonics for common songbirds in the school yard
