Earlier this month, we learned about the different birds seen at the annual Christmas Bird Count. This got us thinking more about birds, and we discovered that this month has been International Bird Feeding Month!
There are many different ways you can help feed the birds in your backyard.
One simple way to help feed birds is with a Bagel Bird Feeder. All you need is a bagel, string, peanut butter and bird seeds. First, you tie the string around the bagel. Then you spread peanut butter over the bagel and pour seeds on it. Once this is done, you hang the bird feeder from tree and watch the birds eat!
You can also do this with a pine cone, a soft pretzel or a corn husk.
After making your bird feeder, you can have your own bird count. Tally and research all of the different birds you see at the bird feeder.
