For the Birds
Have the birds returned to your neighborhood yet? You might notice them singing or building nests. Birds build all kinds of nests for their young. Some are made from mud, others are mostly twigs or bits of paper and yarn. Look for nests in the trees around your home, but don’t touch them. Watch the birds closely. Can you tell which bird makes which song?
Make your own nest. Shape a bit of clay or play dough into a ball. Press your thumb into the center of the ball to make a nest-shaped bowl. Add yarn, sticks and twigs.
