February Unit Study - Birds

This month one of our Unit Studies is - Birds in our Backyard. My children just love birdwatching and it is one of our favorite things to do during our Nature Walks.

Here are a few of the books we are using this month ...

The kids made three pinecone birdfeeders at the Southeastern Flower Show and the birds have been enjoying them tremendously. Yesterday morning, we watched as Cardinals, Blue Jays and Chick a Dees descended on our trees with the birdfeeder pinecones. This week we are going to purchase a nice birdfeeder and some really good bird seed. A friend of mine insists that the more expensive birdseed attracts more birds ... we will put that theory to the test.
