If you have a bird lover, you’ll want to try these bird notebooking pages. We love using our binoculars on your camping trips to observe those birds that are flying in the sky.
There are bird towers and observatories at the site we visit and you can just go and spend hours watching the wetland to see what birds live there.
The best find was a blue heron and we saw it twice, once near the side of the road as we were following a porcupine and another time as it was looking for food in the wetland. Because it’s a conservation area, you get to see tons of wildlife in one place.
While I may only know those common birds like bluejays and robins here in Ontario, it’s fun to see what other types of birds you can identify.
We found a bird’s nest in our backyard and took a picture of the eggs inside. We were then able to identify it as a robin’s nest. You can also study the nest itself as different birds build their nest in different ways.

Bird Notebooking Pages
We love to use these fun pages as a simple way to dive in and learn more about birds. When it comes down to it, there are so many different ways to explore the various types of birds.
Not only do these pages encourage the kids to learn more about birds but it engages them in the process, too.
Bird Notebooking Pages
- Research pages
- Drawing pages
- Writing pages
- Scavenger hunt
While it’s not likely you’ll see a chicken on your nature walk, the scavenger hunt would work if you were visiting a farm or a petting zoo.
To extend the activity, bring a bird guide on your next nature walk to see what birds you can spot. Read some bird books and get to know their diet, habitats, and predators which will help you spot them better the next time you’re out.
See the other Summer Learning Printables here and stay tuned for the new ones.
