Caccia ai Nidi - Winter Nest Hunt
Winter is, for many, a slightly depressing season marked by snow and cold weather, by reduced daylight hours and by the fact that it's a resting period for many plants and animals. But every season has its charm - you just have to know where to look! When the deciduous trees have lost all their leaves and stand out naked against the sky, they reveal the previously hidden nests left behind by their winged inhabitants, allowing us to photograph, study and admire them. We can get close to these little homes to examine how they were built and with what materials and we can guess as to which species of bird they belonged to all without disturbing a single bird because at this point the nests have been abandoned. Take your children for a special kind of natural treasure hunt, looking for bird nests not only among the branches of the trees, but also under the rooves of buildings and inside hedges and bushes lining the street or found around the garden. Above all, have fun!
