What signs of birds can you and your little one see and hear this weekend?
Liv found this hatched robin's egg on the ground near our house. "What color is it? What shape is it? What was inside? What came out of it?" These are a few questions to help your child learn about colors, shapes and even science!
On my same walk with Liv, I heard this bird singing and recorded it for you. Ask your child to listen closely:
Can your family figure out what kind of bird made that sound? Here's a hint: Which of the following bird sounds matches my recording?

Listening and paying attention, practiced in this activity, are key skills for school readiness -- and life!
