Last week I read about an Osprey that travelled 10,000 miles to come back to the place where he has started a family before!
Many migratory birds rely on berries when they are traveling, while in their settled habitats, they might feed mainly on insects. (A recent Science Article reminds us that we could learn a lot about healthy eating from birds' feeding habits!) Colder winters, warmer springs and summers impact wildlife and vegetation in different ways, but there is no doubt that all of life is being affected by these global changes.
5. What migratory species pass through your neighborhood? Find pictures of some of these birds or butterflies and post them by the window inviting children to be on the lookout. Create a chart with some of the pictures so that you can post the dates on which they are observed.
