Bird Watching

My kids are fascinated by nature and its living things. For Maya’s birthday this year, we bought her the book, “birds of Alberta“. Two weeks ago, we saw 3 different kinds of birds right in our front yard. There was precious screech and panic. scrambling to find binoculars. Nothing more precious than your 4-yr-old running out of her bedroom stark naked with binoculars hanging around her neck. We saw a Northern Flicker, Hairy Woodpecker and a Blue Jay. We have a nature book where we draw pictures of memorable discoveries. Here is one of Maya’s entries from that day.
