For the Love of Birds

"For the past four years I have been mentoring a student at Eimeo Road State School through the Kids Hope Australis program. This involves going up to school each Monday and spending the afternoon one on one with this student. Our activities usually include some schoolwork, craft, building things and kicking around a soccer ball (which he likes the most). It's often hard to find things that he likes to do, but around the middle of last year he asked me what I like doing. I told him about my bird obsession; how I like to find, identify and photograph birds. He commented that he likes birds too.

My activities coordinator suggested we could compile a bird list for the school grounds. It sounded like a good idea, so the following weeks were spent wandering the school grounds with binoculars, finding as many different birds as we could. Afterwards, we would go back to the class room and look up the birds we saw in by bird book and read all of the information about them.

On hearing what we were doing, one of the teachers suggested we do a poster of all these birds for the school. So a plan was hatched. It sounded simple at first, but turned into something a little more complicated when dealing with a 10 year old and a non-artistic mentor! The project started with my student painting a scene including shrub, grass, a fence rail and trees. He then glued photos of the birds we had identified on this painting in the place where you might typically see each bird. A typed list of all of the species identified was included. The project culminated with the framing of this work of art.
