Bird-watching gatherings are big business in Arizona
PHOENIX -- From the sandhill crane to the red-faced warbler, rock stars of the birding world have spawned a tourism industry in Arizona that draws bird-watchers from around the world.
Flips the birds
Chris Cunningham doesn’t have anything against the Brown Thrasher — except that it migrates and provides no edible or economic value. He just wants the Georgia state bird to mean a little more to its state.
Make Speedy Bird Racers
Ready, set, fly! You'll soon see flocks of birds flying back from the southern states--another mark of spring's arrival. Let your kids participate in the spring migration by making colorful birds to race on a string. Place some gummy-candy worms in a bowl at the end of the line to reward the winning bird of each race. It's a great group activity and party game.
