What Robin Told
by George Cooper
How do the robins build their nests?
Robin Redbreast told me.
First a wisp of amber hay
In a pretty round they lay;
Then some shreds of downy floss,
Feathers too and bits of moss,
Woven with a sweet, sweet song,
This way, that way, and across,
That's what Robin told me.

My daughters and I were on a hike at Delaney Wildlife Management Area last week. While we were hiking we saw these holes in a number of trees. Do you have a guess on what could have made these?
Look what Nancy saw!
What kind of bird made these prints in the snow?
Here is a bird watching sheet. The idea is that everyone should spend a few minutes each day looking for birds outside and tallying the birds they see. At the end of the week the children can send Julia a picture of their worksheets. Then she can create a graph for the kids to look at.
