Wednesday Explorers Club - leave seeds for the birds
If you're a gardener and love birds, that gives you a great excuse to leave garden "clean-up" till spring. Sunflowers, coneflowers, cosmos, bachelor buttons, coreopsis, asters, zinnias - these flowers produce seeds that birds love to chow down on.
What kinds of flowers do you have in your garden or around the neighborhood that provide winter food for birds? Grab your journal and pencil and sketch a few of them. Then watch what birds harvest the seeds over the next couple months.
