Have you noticed it is a little quieter in your backyard lately? Less tweet, tweets? Fall migration is fun for a lot of bird enthusiasts because they can see birds they don’t normally see as they pass through from places further north. It also means that our summer visitors are packing up and leaving too. I think it is a little sad to say good bye to many of our backyard neighbors as they head off for warmer weather and leave us behind to face the cold alone. They don’t even say good bye! We won’t be along this winter; a few birds will stick around. I notice those crazy House Sparrows are pretty excited to have their prime real estate back.
To celebrate fall migration and help ease that longing until our flying friends return next spring I am sharing a print out bird puppet craft!
Just print out the following PFD, bird puppet on card-stock, color, cut out, and fold on the dotted lines. Then cut the slot along the bottom fold, add a popsicle stick, and glue closed. Once it is dry, hold the stick and flap away!
