I have never been a bird watcher before but as I am aging I can see why people enjoy it so much. Having always lived in the country I have seen lots of birds and learned quite a few of them but realized that I haven't really passed it onto my younger children.
I think the Wild Republic Audubon Bird Collection is great way to teach children about Birds. These birds are cute, have realistic sounds, so good in fact that my cats were attacking this bird at first thinking it was real. My cats are good hunters, sometimes too good. My kids have learned most of the birds by the carcasses our cats bring in. I wanted them to learn in a better way and this is a great way to do it.
They have looked through the birds on the Wild Republic Site and have a few on their wish lists for Christmas and Birthdays. Some of my favorites are the Cardinal, Flamingo, Turkey, and the Bald Eagle. My girls love our Blue Jay, the cats love to hate it, and the sound effects are spot on. We had a Blue Jay outside our window so we pulled out our stuffed Blue Jay and the Blue Jay outside had a short conversation with him. It was fun for the girls to see.
If you are looking for a way to teach your children about birds this is a great way. These even make a great gift for the bird watcher in your life. You can find these Birds and many more on Wild Republic here.
