Observing Native Animals

Like Lewis and Clark, we when out exploring.

We took a long walk through the woods and around the lake near where we live, to see how many local animals we could photograph. Here is what we found:

Then Blaze used his block crayons to make a picture of our most common wildlife around here, squirrels (if you are not counting University students) and copied a poem into his logbook.

I want to do this project again next week and see if we can find different animals. There have been some migrating birds coming through this area, so it's a perfect time for bird watching and animal spotting.
We were awakened a couple mornings ago by Barred Owls calling to each other from the trees just outside our building.
