The kids and I have learned so much about birds during our Bird Unit. I think the neatest thing has been watching the bird feeder which is about 2 feet from our kitchen table. We eat breakfast with the birds. The past 2 mornings a red bellied woodpecker has decided to join us. THAT has been amazing!!
The kids and I made birdseed cookies and placed them out in the front yard for our feathered friends. I noticed today that the front yard has been FULL of tiny little hopping sparrows, doves, robins, and other little feathery signs of spring.
Here is the recipe we used:
2 cups of four
1 cup of salt
birdseed to taste
(Not really, but add enough birdseed and water so that it’s doughy and not too sticky.)
