Bird watching is fun!! Finding and identifying different birds can be easy (almost everyone knows birds like Blue Jays, Robins, and Hummingbirds) or not so easy. You can learn to identify birds by carefully observing a bird's habitat (such as lake or pond, forest, or field), field marks (like color or colors), size and shape, & behavior (such as feeding on the ground or climbing up or down the trunk of a tree).
Seeds (especially sunflower and millet) and suet are high-energy bird foods. Kids can make a simple bird feeder by attaching a short length of string to a pine cone, covering the pine cone with a peanut butter mixture (1/2 cup peanut butter mixed with 2 1/2 cups cornmeal or uncooked oats), rolling it in seeds, then hanging it from a tree branch.
If you've found some neat sites that you think other kids would enjoy, let us know (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) & we'll add them to this list!!!
