Bird Watching: Pass It On!
My goal: to teach these young 'uns that birding is fun, and that birds are really fascinating creatures. (And that there is more to the world of birds than hoot-owls, eagles, and ostriches). Unfortunately our field trip to Indigo Hill last week was rained out. I was looking forward to Julie showing the kids our baby bluebirds in the nest, and how we run our nest box trail.
My last session with the kids this spring was on Monday. Afterwards we went outside for a photo of the class practicing their "lock your eyes on the bird" technique. What a great bunch! I'm looking forward to our classroom adventures next year. But mostly I look forward to seeing Phoebe light up when I walk into the class (here's hoping that doesn't change anytime soon).
