My Best Birding Buddy
Well, of course we could!
We stopped at a trail along the Grand River, one that is good for birding as well as viewing wild animals, reptiles and amphibians. Sam was pointing out bird nests, grasshoppers, a praying mantis, a garter snake as well as various birds. And by now it was very, very, very hot and humid, but there wasn't a murmur of complaint from my companion. I think he could have gone on all day.
Samuel has a blog called Nature and he wrote about our day here. I have many other places to show him and hope he can return soon. I wonder what this very gifted child will accomplish in the future? I would love to take him to see Monarch's bird banding operation sometime. In the meantime he can continue to teach me what he has learnt about nature.
