Bird Haven for Earth Day

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to identify and appreciate the simple things in life.  A few weeks ago, I was reading in my study, when I noticed that the songbirds are back.  I am delighted they have returned to my garden, and realized how much I truly missed them during the cold "winter" months.  As our community grows birds are losing their natural habitat. Therefore, I have begun making plans to create a backyard haven for birds and butterflies. Below are a few of the books that I found helpful.
 

Is It Autumn Yet?

WeatherYes, it's officially autumn, although you wouldn't know it by the weather we've had lately.  It's still hot and humid, but not for long.  I've heard a cold front is going to sweep through in the next day or so.  After hearing the news, I celebrated.  I also began to wonder how weather actually works.  I realized I talk about the weather all the time, yet I don't really know how to predict it or how it forms.  What better way to learn more than to find some books at the library?
