bird of the week

For science this week we've been studying the visitors that come to our feeder. We researched some of them, and picked one to record for our school work. This week's pick: the grey tufted titmice.

Levi played the part of junior ornithologist: he recorded the date we saw it, what the weather was like, and where we saw it, as well as the name of the bird, and tried to draw and color the bird as close to reality as possible.

Micah played the role of charming three year old: he disregarded all reality, gave his "a really, really long beak," and used the color that popped the most to him (he is a bright-oriented, little-man, I tell you).

An excellent science lesson, all things considered!
