Bird’s Nests

Posted by on April 4, 2022

We have been noticing all the birds around us during our nature school adventures.  There are so many to see!!  We have a list that includes 10 different species…can you remember them all?

Lately the Robins have been very busy–singing, eating worms, and making nests.  We were inspired by their construction and attempted to make our own nests last week.  We saw samples of a hummingbird’s nest as well as a number of robin’s nests as well.  We talked about the differences in sizes and construction.  We also wondered how big an Eagle’s nest might be…

We read a little bit about the robin–then began collecting materials to build our own replica nests.  We could work alone, with a partner, or with a group for this activity.  So this was an exercise in building our communication skills as well as a nest!


We had a great time and were very engaged in working with our classmates.  Here are some pictures of some of the nests we made:
