This month’s theme for Nature Book Club is Winter Birds and Nests. We read the book Birds, Nests and Eggs which talks about different birds and the types of nests that they make. I decided it would be fun to go on a Nest Scavenger Hunt around our neighborhood. We then went outside and started looking for nests.
(Lil’ Red said his favorite bird and nest is the American Goldfinch. We have seen these a few times in our neighborhood in the Spring or Summer. They often visit Grandma’s feeders.)
We bundled up with coats, hats, and winter boots. I handed Lil’ Red a pair of binoculars and off we went.
We first spotted a large nest high up in a neighbor’s tree. We think it might be a squirrel’s nest.
