  3. 0759_001-1.pdf It can be tough to take kids into the field. My daughter did better than my son so I took her more often. I took her out in the field as a 9 month old. She was in a pack and play I set up while I was observing juncos. She also helped net song sparrows when she was 4. Both kids loved to band birds and became proficient at setting up nets and taking birds out of the nets.
