More Birding

We had many wonderful visitors to our feeder again today! Cardinals, juncos, blue jays, sparrows, finches, chickadees, and our chubby little squirrel all visited! The children continued expressing their interest in watching the birds through the window, identifying which type of birds we were seeing, and recording the numbers of birds on our birding recording sheet. We had some donated milk and juice cartons and encouraged the children to make their own bird boxes and feeders.

We decorated the cartons with some materials we hoped would adhere strongly and withstand the elements.

Some boxes were hung in the back of the field in our wooded area.

Others were hung in the tree outside our classroom window along with the feeder.
