Great Bird Coloring Book / Journal

I just had to share this oldie but goodie. It really is a bird watcher's journal which allows your child (or you) to color some commonly seen birds and answer questions. It also asks questions which help one to become a more keen observer.

For a fancier (but not free) bird journal for kids, I recommend:

You actually have to write in each bird you see and draw it yourself. Of course, you could print out a picture or use a science coloring book like Peterson's Field Guide Coloring Book for Birds:
