Give your kids a head start on a lifelong pleasure: teach them about birds. First, make a little bird feeder. Hang it from a nearby tree branch or your fire escape to tempt them closer. See who stops by. Then make a game of spotting and identifying birds on your lawn, on a city sidewalk, or soaring overhead. A healthy bird population means the environment is clean, and that’s something we can all appreciate.
