I know I haven't covered much on our big goal, but this weekend, Jonathon and I will be going out (without children), and we will sit down then and write out what our goals are and THEN I will get on the ball with this. Stay tuned, but until then, we wanted to share our birds with you.
Once a week we do a story time with another family from church, and we take turns hosting it and planning it. One week, we decided to do it on birds, and for the craft we made suet blocks (this is a great winter project. Directions for making at the end of the post). We hung one of ours in the tree just outside our big front window and Jonathon screwed a piece of wood outside the window where we sat the other two. So far, no birds right up at the window. I wonder why with three chilren who as soon as they see a bird, yell, "BIRD". = )
Alegra has enjoyed taking pictures of them, so I wanted to display some of her work.
These little guys look like sparrows to me, but I do believe they are a fancier kind of sparrow if there is such a thing. If anybody knows what kind this is, please leave a comment. The head had more distinct markings than a sparrow, which makes me think it is one of those, something or other crowned sparrows or something like that. Any help? I really need a good bird book!
