Today: Our (Long-awaited) Birding Field Trip

We had a great family field trip today!  We took a 2 hour trip to Whele Nature Center where a wildlife biologist/ornithologst spent 3 hours with our family.  This is a trip that has been planned for months.  We had been in contact with the ornithologists at the nature center, and they had invited my oldest son (and us) out for a visit.  It is peak migration time...so today was the day!  My oldest was thrilled to add 9 new birds to his life list!

Big brother is not the only one who likes birding!

It was a great day.....  I loved being surrounded by peaceful nature, eating our picnic and being with my family!
