We have been enjoying birdwatching as a family here at the new house. We have several feeders set up, and have seen a number of birds, including Robins, Woodpeckers and Nuthatches. James has a great view of the feeders from his seat at the table in the kitchen, and he knows nearly every variety. His favorite is the "Chick-a-dee-dee-dee" as he says it.
A few weeks ago we did a little craft project with cut paper. I asked him body parts for birds (body, legs, wings, beak) and I cut them out. He then glued them on the paper. Here is a comparison of the real birds we have photographed, and James' versions.
Of course, being his Mom, I think these are pretty fantastic. Maybe I have a little John James Audubon on my hands!
