Did you hear that? Rattle, tat, tat, tat! Run, look out the window, there’s a sapsucker visiting again. I hear their tap or their call and I try to sneak a peek. There is such joy in seeing this colorful woodpecker each year, a reward for the effort put into learning about him and all the other birds that come to visit.
Your family can learn about this interesting and beautiful woodpecker with this Outdoor Hour Challenge.
View the original challenge here: Outdoor Hour Challenge – Sapsucker.
If you have access to the ebook, there are two notebook pages to choose from for your nature journal.
Alternate study: Take a bird walk and look especially for birds you observe in trees.
