Daily Dose: Free as a Bird

Here’s today’s dose of nature connection ideas!

Stand outside and close your eyes. Imagine yourself as a bird hovering above your home. What do you see? Imagine catching the thermal (hot air rising that lifts a bird- when you see a bird spiraling up and up, they have caught a thermal of air). Continue to rise just above the tallest tree. What do you see now? Keep catching the thermal. As you spiral up notice what you see until you are so high up that you can see earth’s entire sphere.

ADVENTURE: Make a Nest
Find some grasses and twigs to build a bird nest. You can add mud or flowers or anything you find. Nests come in all shapes and sizes so use your imagination! No need to have a particular bird in mind but do keep in mind that birds make incredible nests with only their beaks and a little help from their little legs.

Bonus – find a tree or bush outside your window to place your nest. Add some seeds or nuts and see if anyone comes to visit.
