A Busy Animal

We came across this little scene in our yard the other day – some sweet little animal is busily preparing for winter!

A few days later, this is what we found in the same tree cavity! It was so full of hickory nuts that I asked my children if they had stuffed the hole.  Everyone said no, which means there was A LOT of work done by some small creature in two or three day’s time!

Just yesterday, this HUGE flock of birds landed in the hay field just outside our house.  It actually “got dark” as they were flying over the house!

Now is the perfect time for observing animals who are preparing for winter!  Find all sorts of lesson ideas in Coping with the Cold!
