We are loving our study of birds!
The Burgess Bird Book for Children is a gem! While I read it to them, Hannah and Will flip through the guide books looking for pictures of the birds mentioned in the story.
Hannah uses Peterson's Field Guide.
Will flips through this one... not as overwhelming, or exhaustive.
We gather around the computer to find out more and listen to bird calls and songs. enature.com and allaboutbirds.org are our favorites.
I love to make connections for my kids. So, we are studying John James Audubon for our September Artist Study. The Boy Who Drew Birds is a beautiful book.
Doing a little coloring in Audubon's Coloring Book.
I just ordered this beautiful poster for our school room from imaginechildhood.com.
Now I need to figure out how to rig a bird feeder that feeds birds and not squirrels (or rats - aah, city life!). Ideas?
