Learning about birds from Ohio

Our bird feeder that feeds red-bellied woodpeckers, mourning doves and black birds. 

Trees where our goldfinches, cardinals and robins feed.

The Borror Labratory has free bird sounds from Ohio available on iTunes.  It's such a treat and it's free!! It houses one of the most extensive collections of animal sounds in the world. 

The girls and I have been stuck in the house lately. One of their favorite things to do is to feed the backyard birds and to listen to them sing.

I thought today that they must have something on iTunes to help them learn more and found a great resource at the Ohio Borror Laboratory of Bioacoustics.

Best thing? It's free!

To listen to the bird recordings simply visit the link. The girls loved trying to imitate the calls and looking at the picture of the bird in our book from the library. 

National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America
We used this book to locate birds from Ohio. Ava loved seeing what the birds eat and Sophia tried to imitate their sounds.
