With a little luck, Nature will charm the child into looking forward to the next field trip.

Depending on the age of the child, s/he may even be able to develop some of these activity sheets on their own.
Overall, activities should be varied, suited to the interest and age of the child, and drive the learning process.
Once the child can identify a few birds, it may be time to take a little field trip. More on that in a future post.

Within a week of setting up a new bird feeder, birds will begin to show up. Especially in inclement weather, the feeder will likely be very busy. Watching the birds come and go - what a great rainy day activity!
http://www.birderslibrary.com/features/childrens-bird-books.htm The library may be the next stop on the bird-book outing. Reading stories about birds is a great way for a young birder to develop a relationship with the little creatures. What child doesn't enjoy a good story?

By the way, a Hairy Woodpecker has shown up a couple of times on Blackhead Road drumming on a power pole near bus stop area.
