Ben and Luci are studying birds and other flying creatures for science this year. We are using Jeannie Fulbright's Exploring Creation with Zoology I: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day.
Today, they filled their birdfeeders. It's something we should have done a couple of weeks ago, but because I've been so busy the task of buying birdseed fell to the bottom of my to-do list.
They talked as they worked, using their newly developed 'bird vocabulary'. They are junior birders.
They talked about what kinds of birds they might see, and how they will know them by their field marks.
They talked about where they wanted to hang their birdfeeders. Ben wanted to hang his high. Luci wanted to hang hers low ~ For the baby birds of course.
I am really glad that they are doing this science study together. There is something genuinely precious in watching them share the learning experience.
