Bird Field Guide sheets

As we continue our search for our new family home I think of so many of the things I love here. One is that we are blessed with an abundance of birds in our yard. I don’t know if I would have noticed this, had my mother not discovered her love of birding. So now as we eat breakfast we look out our window and watch our feathered friends eat breakfast and sing us good morning.

So last night as I was working on some other work sheets and I got the Idea to make a field guide sheet for Little and my mom aka Grammy. Grammy just got Little a pair of binoculars for her birthday. We are also always on the look out for fun activities to do as a family and so this week we are adding bird watching to our weekly rhythm.

so I of course whipped up a quick Bird Field guide sheet and thought you might like it too.

Our Idea is to meet every Wednesday morning some where and ask Little “what bird do you see?” She will point out the first bird she sees and that will be our subject for study that day. The top left square is to draw a picture of the bird and as we do this we can talk about what the different features mean and why they help the bird. The name of the bird can be written in the banner in that square. Beneath that are some lines to write in observations. What is the bird doing? Does it sing? What does it eat? Grammy’s observations might be more advanced but I  think we will keep it simple for Little. Under that are 4 small squares to write in date, time, location and weather. The long strip to the side is where to jot down any other bird spices we see that day.

As the rain comes (oh please, oh please, oh please let the rain come this winter) it will be nice to have an activity we can do inside but still be focused on the outside. Hope you like it 🙂

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
