“Care of Birds and Their Nests”

“Care of Birds and Their Nests”

 

As I was perusing my bird photo files looking for photos of birds and their nests, I was reminded of my early days as an elementary teacher. At that time, 1964, the Texas Education Agency had included in its Education Code a little known rule which required elementary teachers to devote at least 15 minutes a week of instruction to “Care of Birds and Their Nests”. This rule has since been deleted from the Code.

I guess that rule has stuck with me. Consider this Blog my reminder to “Care for Birds and Their Nests”.

  1. What a grand collection of bird’s nests!!! Where were the humming bird’s nests…I have never seen one!

    I was teaching in Birdville that year, and they failed to let us know about the new law concerning the care of birds and their nests…

  2. Micheal, we had this HUGE osprey nest over at Eastward. Did you see when you visited us? It was simply amazing and stayed for a very long time. I love the bald eagle one, too.
