We spent the afternoon at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Here's a peek at our fun time! (pardon the cell phone pictures- I broke the memory card for our Canon)
|Lots of birds are back in town. It was fun to hear all the chatter there yesterday. Check out this terrible picture of a great blue heron its nest. Yes, that's him there standing on the nest.|
|After we had walked a while we sat for some reading- R11 pulled out her sketch easel (home made) and made some drawings.|
|Then it was back to walking...I9 was our navigator and chose a new route.|
|J6 loved seeing the changes in the wetlands- still some ice down there, but it is fast fading already. For the moment. I keep thinking winter is going to come in earnest at some point. I guess maybe not this year.|
|Hi friend! We must have seen 20-30 red winged blackbirds in the trees on an island near the observatory. This is my very favorite bird call- what says spring and summer more than the red-winged black bird call? Go ahead and hit that link to have a listen.|
|At home we followed with a game of Equate- great math game.|
I'm going to spend the next long while focusing on our school and having a good time with the kids. It's long over due after a month of preparing our house to sell. I'll be able to step up the blogging along with that. I already have some posts to share!
