It's been an exceptionally busy week working from home. Thank you for your patience as I hobble around visiting whenever possible. Our birding class is going very well, but the first field trip was canceled due to rain. Two field trips are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday this weekend―both start at 7AM! Ugh, we are NOT morning people. At. All.
|Male house finch|
Did you know birds with thick beaks like finches and cardinals are seed eaters?
I learned that in class. :)
|Barbara the barred owl from Feb 15th.|
Their tails are used as a prop to help them climb trees. I learned that in class, too.
|Male flowers of the swamp maple.|
I did not learn that in class.
|Injured ibis from Dec 29th. :(|
|See how his right wing droops? I think that was his problem. Hope he's okay.|
I checked on him two days later and he was gone.
