Spring season is the perfect time of year to go exploring for a bird nest. A nature walk offers lots of opportunity for bird nest hunting. You will have to look closely in trees and bushes, or even inside a shed, so take along some binoculars or magnifiers.

You might discover a new nest under construction in a tree, or spot an old unused nest on the ground if you are lucky. Be extra careful not to disturb the habitat! This topic can be part of a nature discussion with kids.

You can extend the interest in bird nests with books, videos, discussions, and of course, crafts and activities.
