We made a milk jug bird feeder which has turned out to be a huge disappointment. We haven't seen one bird visiting this feeder. The kids think the perching opportunity is not attractive to the birds. I say others must use these if they have directions for them on the internet! Right?!

We have a walk scheduled at the Lab of Ornithology on Friday morning. Looks like there will be snow on the ground still. One of the things I really like doing once all the results are in is a little graphing with my kids. Keep checking back at the GBBC site for this year's results or simply use results from a previous year and have your kids graph the numbers of bird species spotted this year. Hopefully, we'll see the raw data for this year. That is how they used to post it, but I notice there are graphs where once there was just data. I suppose if we can't construct a graph, then we'll just have to interpret it!
