This is another fun game. How it works it we go through the whole alphabet A-Z and for each say the bird species and post a photo of the bird. For example, A can be for Acorn Woodpecker, then after that B can be for Bahama Mockingbird. Etc. After we get to Z, start at A again, but you can't do the same exact bird for A twice. Good luck :)

NB: the pictures must be your own images.

One of the joys of lockdown was finding this nest within walking distance of our flat in Birmingham UK.
