Are you participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count? My kids are very interested in learning about birds, so I came up with some bird activities to last through the month. Each day this week we will go on a bird hunt and see what type of bird we can spy with our little eye. We’ll pick one to study more in-depth.

We’ll also revisit some of the previous bird activities we have done in the past.
