I study birds. Never used a setup curr. though. The Handbook of Nature Study by Comstock is a good starting point. Written for your age but actually geared toward the teacher. It gives some good observations on habits and characteristics that others do not.
Participate in the Citizens Science part of Cornell Universities Bird Counts. That will get you into the serious IDing of your local birds and get you very familiar with their habits. Do an anatomy chart and fill in all the areas and their names. Look for nature clubs and bird banding programs in your area. They will have a busy fall migration coming up so you would need to look into this soon. And buy a really good field guide such as Smithsonian, Kaufmann's or Petersons. These are the ones I recommend. Any other questions email me directly. God Bless it is a rewarding subject!
