This weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count. You should participate! It only takes 15 minutes of your time (or more if you are a bird-hound like Kiddo). The official website will provide you with a list of common birds in your area and detailed instructions for participation. There's no reason not to get your kids involved.
Like many kids who have older siblings, New Kid worships his big brother. New Kid doesn't quite understand what birding is all about, but what he does know is that since Kiddo thinks birds are awesome, he thinks so too.

What are your favorite books about birds? Will you be participating in the Backyard Bird Count?
