Singing in Spring

Some of my favorite memories with my grandparents involved watching the birds at their birdfeeders.  My grandpa loved feeding the birds and watching them enjoy their feasts.  He would tell us the name of each type of bird that visited his yard as he saw them.  I loved that man and I cherish those memories.

I was fascinated by my grandpa, and largely because of him, I was fascinated with nature.  I want my boys to know the same kind of awe that I had when sitting by the window or on the patio and observing the birds.  I want them to build the kind of relationship I had with my grandparents.  My boys adore their grandparents.  I want to find ways to continually foster those growing relationships.  

We recently got the chance to receive a Perky Pet Birdscapes Upside Down Goldfinch Feeder.  I love watching finches, and think it would be a lot of fun to watch these as they turn themselves upside down to get seeds.  We decided that instead of adding this to the treats in our yard, it would be a great way to help our boys connect with nature at Grandma's house.  Not only is it fun for the boys, it makes a wonderful gift.

Grandma was very surprised by the bird feeder and the boys have an extra attachment to it because they know where it came from.  We know this bird feeder will last a long time.  Perky Pet feeders because are excellent quality!
