Last week I took the kids in my class on a walk. We were finishing up on our bird unit and decided to visit a nearby duck pond. We found plenty of birds and, as a bonus, found Spring as well!
Beautiful blossoms lined our walk.
The walk was pretty long and it was one of the warmest days we've had in awhile. The kiddos were troopers!
We saw many birds: ducks, geese, swans, seagulls, a hawk, and many more! We found something even more exciting: a nest full of large eggs! We think they may be the eggs of some Canadian geese we had seen nearby. The children were amazed!
This guy cracked me up and reminded me of a duck that I used to visit in San Diego that I had named "Amadeus" (as in Motzart). Check out the hair! Stylish!
This pond is also a home to MANY turtles. The kids wanted to catch one so it could be friends with Courtney, our pet turtle.
