Carolina Chickadee Sketches

We've been watching our bird feeder. Our AV Club president and resident tech-expert, King, even set up a video camera to record who comes to feed. I hope to eventually graduate to real, live bird watching and observing, but we are starting with the videotaping method.

The boys will then choose a bird, identify it, research it and present their findings in our nature study class.

King was first up and chose the Carolina chickadee.

We made sketches from photos found on the internet.

To prevent this exercise from being too sweet and perfect, the boys each defaced their original chickadee photograph.
