One project we are working on continually is making a habitat in our backyard that the birds enjoy visiting. We have been hanging feeders, making feeders. Hanging suet cakes and our intention is to make a homemade birdbath, we haven't gotten to that just yet.
Of course the above bird is one that is easy to identify.
He is the Male Northern Cardinal
Birding is such a great hobby. I love seeing new birds. The children and I keep an ongoing list of birds that visit our habitat. We eagerly check our manual when new birds come for a visit.
If you don't have a place to view the birds with your children, I encourage you to make a spot. It is a great inexpensive way you can enjoy some of God's creation with your little ones when it may be a bit too chilly to be out-of-doors.
Have a great day!
