***********************************************************************************************************************************

A great activity for you to do at home with your child would be to take a walk through your neighborhood, down a road or even walk down a city street and look closely at all the buildings, houses, etc. that you see. Look for evidence and or clues that a bird may be living there! The talk to your child about how the bird may or may not like the habitat that you see their nest in.
