This month we are studying birds with Barb at the Handbook of Nature Study blog.  We set up two tables in our living/school room.  This one is our nature table with lots of "bird" items to explore.
And we set up this table in front of the window where our bird feeders are, so we can watch the birds.  Tabbi really enjoys marking down which birds we see.
She was excited to see her first female Hairy Woodpecker on the suet.  
Wish we would have gotten a picture of it. 

For something new this year we did a study on owls. 
We listened to several owl calls here,
Made these cute pine cone owls.
Painted some owl pictures from inspiration we found here.

And we invited some friends over for an owl pellet dissection party!

We even made owl cookies for our party snack!

Thanks for stopping by.
