We are learning about birds. What are birds, what do they eat, what do they do, where do they live, how do they fly, what do they look like, etc....

In order to see what they look like, we needed to make these nifty binoculars to see them with. The only part I really helped with was the punching of the holes in the side and tying the string....however their were a couple that could do that part also.

We taped, painted, holed, and tied...and then, we were ready for a bird watch.

We found some cool crows....they eat anything...really, anything.

We found some finches, so we put up a finch bird feeder.

We found some Steller Jays. Some people call these Blue Jays...(my mom did, so I did, growing up) but Blue Jays are cute little quiet birds while Stellar Jays are obnoxious crazy mean birds. We found Robins, seagulls (I don't know why they fly over our house....we are 30 miles from puget sound) an Eagle and I think a Hawk.

We will be making a chart of the birds that we see.
