Ornithology is a type of biology involving the scientific study of every aspect of birds including flight & migration patterns, appearance, behaviour, classification and bird songs. Ornithology is a science (and one of the few remaining), where non professionals - amateur birders - are able to make significant contributions. This is particularly with regard to exploring where birds occur naturally; this is done through the contribution of sight records, and in the monitoring of change in bird populations and this is achieved through annual bird counts worldwide. Information gathered by ornithologists is used to better understand how birds function and how they relate to their environment as birds are good indicators of environmental health. This 12 module course is studied by distance learning, with full tutor support.
