Fall seems like a weird time to be talking about bird nests. Birds nest in the spring, right?
But it’s actually a great time for kids to go looking for nests. Why? Because looking for them in the spring can be difficult for children — and dangerous for the birds.
In the fall, once leaves are off the trees, finding nests can be easier and quicker. You can practice getting an eye for where they might be found. Plus, some birds nest near where they nested previously, so it’s a good way to scope out where to look in the spring.
Read on to find out more about bird nests and how to go looking for nests this fall with your kids.
