Bird watching… from the comforts of my home 🏡
It all started with a book…
This book is amazing! I’m reading a chapter aloud a day- and each chapter tells the story of a bird through the eyes of a bird watcher. After we read the chapter, we also watch YouTube videos to actually see the bird 🐦! We are learning so much about bird behavior!!
Anyway, the book is very inspiring- all we wanted to do was go bird watching.
The problem… my kids can’t all be quiet 🤐 at the same time! LOL! 😂
We have tried to go bird watching, but it’s near impossible to see anything.
I set up more feeders outside my front window –
added a variety of food
* meal worm cake
*woodpecker suet feeder
*Woodpecker, Nuthatch, and Chickadee seed
*sunflower seeds and Safflower seeds
* thistle seed
…. and even put a comfy couch in front of the window!
Too name a few – cardinals, blue jays, titmouse, sparrows, doves, finches, downy woodpecker and (my favorite) a northern flicker woodpecker!
It is very hard (for me) to snap a picture of these beautiful birds… but I did manage to get a picture of a downy woodpecker 😊!
