An Introduction to Backyard Birding

A CBF Education Student Investigation

The Chesapeake Bay watershed is home to a plethora of well-known birds. Near waterways you can find the Chesapeake’s famed raptors—the bald eagle and the osprey. The watershed’s forests, woods, and backyards are home to recognizable species such as cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, and mourning doves. In this video, join CBF Educator Tiffany Granberg as she explains how you can identify the birds that may frequent your backyard and other neighborhoods in the Bay watershed. To learn more about the birds in the area, try the Identify Birds in Your Own Backyard Investigation.
