Birding 101


Last week, the children and I started working on a project for Biology. We have made a 'birding' station right outside our bay window in the school room.
We filled and hung feeders.
We made and hung suet cakes.
We horsed around a bit...
We talked with the out of doors members of our family...


And we made our choices on which feeder would be emptied the quickest.
We used two different types of seed and made our pick.
Now throughout the chilly months ahead we can watch our feathered friends and determine if our theories were correct.

  1. I think watching the birds at the feeders throughout the Winter months with the children are one of my favorite things to do. They love watching them just as much as I do.
    I loved your project and your pictures were great. Have a great day with your little weeones.
