Great Backyard Bird Count February 15 – 18, 2013

Great Backyard Bird Count

Well, it’s time to count birds in our backyards again!! We had so much fun doing this count during our study of Apologia’s Flying Creatures, I figure we will make this an annual event. So we are getting everything ready! This year we are adding a few things to help with our bird identification. If you live in TN here is a link to the most common bird cards to print and study: http://jimmiescollage.com/2011/02/more-bird-resources-for-backyard-bird-count/

We will be using the Bird Observation sheet from The Notebooking Fairy http://notebookingfairy.com/2011/11/bird-observation-notebooking-page/.

For those that are doing or want to start a nature journal, here is a great bird feeder journal page: http://www.arps.org/users/ms/pricen/Science7/biology/Ecology/nfj/birdfder.pdf

We are going to make some homemade bird seed ornaments and suet to hang out. You can find recipes for both here: http://handsonaswegrow.com/homemade-heart-bird-feeder/# and http://www.artistic-garden.com/easy-homemade-bird-suet-recipe/

I hope you will get involved in the great backyard bird count! It is a fun and easy way to encourage our children to slow down, look around and to demonstrate making the time to study nature and our Father’s creation! Remember, our children do what we do, not what we say!!
