Winter birds

Here's a little activity with some winter friends, who are visiting our nature table. First, we hung up our new bird feeder and took out a small and manageable bird identification brochure. Then, I cut out some bird shapes and my little one identified and colored them in. So far, we identified a blue jay, cardinal, red-bellied woodpecker, tufted titmouse, white-breasted nuthatch, and a chickadee. The white markings were hard for my little one. So the chickadee looks more like a junco. Grampie & Nana are bird enthusiasts, so they have taught us a lot.

All we need is a branch for our nature table. That's on our list today, as well as making some snacks for the birds.
