Look for Birds
Keep a Bird Journal
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! :-)
I am joining in, I had such fun this past month on my old blog I thought to take it with me to my new one here on Blogger...
I like this format here for looking ahead to the next month. You have such lovely things planned.
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.
