Bird Study Merit Badge
Birds are among the most fascinating creatures on Earth. Many are beautifully colored. Others are accomplished singers. Many of the most important discoveries about birds and how they live have been made by amateur birders. In pursuing this hobby, a Scout might someday make a valuable contribution to our understanding of the natural world.
A reader asks about how old a Scout should be to work on a merit badge. The Guide to Advancement provides some answers.
The Bird Study merit badge is a good elective for the Boy Scouts in your troop who enjoy watching birds.
Use dried gourds to make a birdhouse. If you didn’t grow any yourself, you can probably find some in your area at a farmer’s market or even a craft shop.
