Did you participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count? I forgot about it again this year. My kids are very interested in learning about birds, so I came up with a plan B. Each day this week we will go on a bird hunt and see what type of bird we can spy with our little eye. We’ll pick one to study more in-depth. To help us, I created a simple notebooking page to record our findings:
We’ll also revisit some of the previous bird activities we have done in the past.
