Mark your calendars New Zealand

27 June - 5 July 2009

It's been a long while since I mentioned anything "nature-y" and although I'm not actually directing your attention to anything we've done recently, I am actually using today's post to remind New Zealanders to mark their calendars for the above event.

It will only require an hour each day to complete your research, but if you're like us, this will generally be over our breakfast time. One of the beauties of being homeschoolers, is that we're not in the morning rush to get out the door and off to school, so we enjoy our mornings to see what birds are visiting each day.

When you follow the link you'll not only be able to download the form to record your research but you can download a nifty colourful .pdf photo chart of the common birds.

Last year I didn't recognise many of the birds, but it's a pleasure to think I now recognise most, if not all who frequent our neck of the woods.

So, don't forget, mark your calendars and help monitor the distribution and population trends of common garden birds in New Zealand.
