|R11 added some nice detail- including naming all the different plants we have. I love the extra room she gave our deck- if only!|

|Not bad for a first grader's map!|
In case you haven't seen some of the resources supported by the Lab of Ornithology, here are a few to enjoy:
All About Birds
Bird Sleuth- some resources and curriculum for homeschoolers to purchase
eBird- let's you record bird sitings year round
Birds are pretty easy to observe and track year round. As part of our Bird Habitat study, I think I will encourage the kids to grow some plants next spring which will attract some species of birds. The study we are a part of suggests it and I was reading a lovely magazine today called Birds and Blooms. It gave me some great ideas on where to start and gave me a clue as to why the birds love our Blue Spruce tree in the front yard.
How many of you are birders?
