I took this photo this morning too. Liam is using his new binoculars to birdwatch.
Here's our list of birds we spotted:
Red Tailed Hawk (in flight!)
dozens of sparrows
10 male mallards
1 morning dove
a flock of Canada geese overhead in a V
1 goose who took off into flight right in front of us!
3 downy woodpeckers
AND 1 unidentified bird that hitched its way up a tree trunk and disappeared into a little hole in the tree right before my very eyes! I am going to try to find that one in my birding book.
We had a glorious time! I've got wet jeans up to my ankles but a warm heart. Liam and I must have exchanged a dozen hugs; he was quick to ask if we could do this every Sat. I'm inclined to say yes!
Nature walking: good for the soul.
