I thought I would do a quick post this morning and share with you some really neat {free} resources for your nature-loving children!  The picture here is one that my oldest son took of a woodpecker at his suet feeder.

He really enjoys the birds and so some of these links are going to be specific to birds, but you will find a variety of others as well.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, I was just surfing and checking out your recipe cards that I found from searching for recipes for Trim Healthy Mama at Gwens Nest when I stumbled on your post about homeschooling and birds in nature. I thought I would share a link for any of your readers who would be interested in watching a live webcam of some Great Blue Heron, Red Tailed Hawk, and other wild birds. Enjoy.
    1. Thank you SallyAnn! I added the link above in my post! My son loves watching birdcams too.
