Join me at Teach Them Diligently today for some great resources on Bird Watching with Preschoolers. There is also a really fun bird seed cake craft to make indoors with your little ones! Be sure to check it out.
We love watching birds out our kitchen window. It makes meal time lots of fun, too. We are going to be keeping a bird log a few days a week as part of our nature study learning. I made a fun printable sheet for us to use and am sharing it here with you! We will be using it to practice writing numbers and simple words. The last sentence “I learned ______ today” is meant for small narration so your preschooler may say “birds migrate”, “cardinal mommies are brown”, or “birds eat butterflies”.

Some of our favorite bird watching resources are:
- Binoculars. We love our binoculars for watching the birds fly, the hawks nest in our back yard and for our great big safari adventures in the house!
- iBird Yard App. This great little app is worth every penny of the $4.99 it usually costs, but at the time of this post it is on sale for $2.99! We have identified several birds with this app. It has calls, pictures, and lots of great information on each bird.
- Audubon First Field Guide Birds. We love Audubon First Field Guides, and have found Throftbooks to be the least expensive place to obtain copies.
- Birds at my Feeder is a lovely book that is perfect for preschoolers. It has just enough information to be engaging without being overwhelming. The illustrations are incredible!
- Bird feeder for our deck. Outside your window, on your balcony, but you need to have a birdfeeder somewhere your preschooler can sit and watch from inside when it’s cold and outside when it is warm!
