We've been doing a lot of birdding around here lately ... as in seeing how many different types of birds we can find! Little c has suddenly become a bird watcher after viewing the movie The Big Year. Yes, not your usual four-year-old movie fare, but she's been fascinated since the first time she saw it - and there have been several more viewings! It's a very character driven story with no animated princesses or Broadway worthy songs - or songs of any type except for the birds. She's already planning on doing a big year when she grows up and until then, each day we wander the farm looking for new birds.
Luckily this is a birdder's paradise! We have a large variety of resident birds in the summer and countless travelers passing through during migration time. And a nearby pair of golden eagles who make their rounds most days. One swooped down over me the other day and about scared the bejeebers out of me!
And it looks like I have a new summer project - little c has requested a bird quilt. I think it should include all the birds she's been learning the names of, but don't quite have a picture of it in my mind yet. Something new to ponder!
Happy Creating! Deborah
