I’m a bit of a birder, and love teaching my kids about birds. We love watching them together, mimicking their calls, taking photographs and even feeding them some times. Since Thea’s five year old son tagged us for a kid-interview, I thought I’d ask my three year old about birds.
What is your favourite bird?
Rainbow Lorikeets because they are so colourful. Their other name is Trichoglossus Haemotodus. They come to say good morning to me. They sleep at night time.
Do you know about some birds that are awake at night time?
Hoot hoot – owls! And Tooney (she meant Tawny) Frogmouths.
What do you know about nests?
Birds lay eggs in their nests. Bower Birds even make special bowers and put blue things everywhere.
Do birds all have the same type of eggs?
No. Eggs can be white, yellow, blue. They can be spotty or zigzag-y. They can be camouflaged so hungry foxes can’t find them.
Which bird has the best song?
I like Butcher Birds and Currawongs.
Can you tell me about this photo?
Me taking a photo of a rainbow lorikeet! He was hiding.
Anyone else like to do a kid-interview on their blog? I won’t tag anyone but feel free to join the fun. What topics interest your child?
