I love incorporating my love of nature with a simple Science activity like bird watching. We were recently given a clear window bird feeder by Yellow Beaks. I have had my eye on a clear bird feeder for a long time. My husband actually had a small kit with one growing up that got broke many years ago.
Big Red and Lil’ Red were super excited about a new box arriving in the mail. They both wanted me to take pictures. Big Red even did a short video of how to open the bird feeder and how to fill the bird feeder!
It came very well packed with bubble wrap and inside two boxes which prevented it from any damage during shipping. Hubby was able to attach the suction cups to the kitchen window easily. We did wash the window first for a clear view of the bird feeder. We have had a handful of very sever weather and storms since it was placed. The bird feeder has withstood all the wind, rain, and storms.
We noticed the seed had been disturbed but we didn’t know who came to the feeder to eat. We kept watch each day hoping we would catch a bird eating. Well, just so happened that we caught a visitor but not a bird! A squirrel dropped down from the roof onto the windowsill and had a little snack. He proceeded right into the bird feeder. Those suction cups are strong and stayed right in place!
We are hoping to get more visitor’s that we can hopefully watch, draw, and learn from.
