  • Draw bird pictures. If you have a talent for sketching, you can create some images to use for yourself or to give away. If you have children, get them some coloring pages about birds.
  • Have a spotting session. How many different kinds of birds can you see? If the weather is cooperating for an outdoor day, you can certainly do this from a window. Record the different ones that you see.
