I love the idea of a bird journal; my kids would love that. We have quite a variety of birds showing up in the yard this year. Do you think you will just track what birds you see each day or try sketching or photography too?

I think that I am going to either find pictures of the birds we find on the internet or take pictures of them and have my daughter glue the pictures into a little book. I'll probably write the name of the bird down for her and try to get her to draw a picture of the bird. I think that she will enjoy that part of it, but you never know;)

Emma, that's exactly how we keep our bird journal! We've slacked off, but you've inspired me to get back to it. We've watched a woodpecker (specifically a yellow-bellied sap sucker) take near-total control of our suet this winter, but we never added him to our book! Maybe we can tomorrow-- and the lone chickadee that manages a bite when he's not around. Oh, and the blue heron is back! Wow, we better get moving.

I also wanted to comment that you're doing an amazing job keeping the seasonal rhythms in the forefront of your goals! Oh, and when you find some rainboots, I want to see! :-)

Spring is my daughter Clare's FAVORITE book right now. We have similar book loves!

I really enjoy your lists and have copied a lot of the ideas onto my master lists to later print when I finally make my notebooks. I was just hoping and thought I'd see if you were going to post a new list for May. Thanks.
