As birding has become one of my new occasional pastimes, my attention was grabbed by this post about resources for birding with children at the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival being hosted at Higher Up and Further In.
Some good looking books, interesting links, and other things there, though many are of course currently above Bella’s level, they might be good resources for me and Dom.
But what really excited me were these Audobon plush birds that play real bird songs. They are so cute and I really love that they play the bird songs. Dom’s got a great app for his iPhone that plays songs of the various birds and I love using it and have started to recognize some of our neighborhood birds by their songs. I’m pretty sure I know the robin, the titmouse, the sparrows and the jays, I think I even know the oriole. I’d love for the girls to be able to do the same. Many of these birds are also available on Amazon, for a little less money, and I’ve added a few of the birds we’ve been seeing in our backyard this spring, plus some we’ve been seeing at the parks, to Isabella’s wish list.
