Materials: Yarn, Cardboard tube, Honey, Shallow dishes, Birdseed, Paper or journal, Pen or pencil.
Make this bird feeder and watch for visiting birds.
Step 1: Thread a long piece of yarn through the hole of an empty toilet-paper roll or tube, tie the ends together.
Step 2: Pour honey into a shallow dish or pan, pour birdseed into another. Roll the tube in the honey coating the entire surface, and then roll it in the birdseed.
Step 3: Hang the bird feeder from a low branch in a tree you can see from a window. Watch for the birds. As they come to to the feeder, try to draw or describe them in a nature journal. Use a field guide to identify the different types of birds you see.
