Nature Notes

Debunking Nature Myths

Tracks and Trails Forest Park Nature Center

Myth: Birds will abandon their babies if you touch them.

·        Most song birds do not have great sense of smell. Their goal is procreation so they will do anything to accomplish that.

·        Baby birds—ok to put them back into the nest. If you can’t reach nest then you can make a substitute nest and place it nearby.

·        If you find a fledgling…leave it alone. Fledglings have eyes open, are covered in feathers, and are often hopping on the ground. Parents are probably nearby.

Do you have any nature myths to share?

Needle Notes

Took it all to Stitches. Finished 4  Mother Bears!


Marie sewed one together.


Tips

·        If using Mattress Stitch, don’t worry about color of thread because it doesn’t show.

·        Identify groups of tails that will not be used for stitching. Knot these together and trim. Leave inside bear.
