Trailcam/Hummingbirdfeeders experiment for 3rd grade class

3 years ago

I've been with GardenWeb since 2001, but this is my first post to this forum. I'll be teaching 3rd grade for the very first time beginning in August. I'd like to start them with the Scientific Method with 3 hummingbird feeders that are identical, except for the colors. In order to see which feeder attracts the most hummingbirds (we may have to break it down by types of hummingbirds, depending on what we see.)

So, my first request is, can you share with me your ideas on feeders? I'm open to the variables being different types of feeders, rather than colors of feeders.

My second question is regarding what type of outdoor camera you might recommend that would record any hummingbirds that might appear any time, day or night. It would also need to withstand the elements.

Thank you in advance for any and all help you provide!
