Fauna spent the late morning hours outside creating a map of our yard, “boy, we sure have a lot of trees!”
Things learned today from being outside- direct quotes from the girls:
1. wilted dandelions attract ants
2. Eastern Towhee bird call
3. directions the wind was blowing
4. if you don’t bother a wasp they won’t bother you
5. worms seem to prefer a sandy like soil, box turtles can eat 5 worms in one sitting
6. the difference between a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and an Eastern Towhee
7. hyacinth blossoms have 6 petals, each little cup on the stem is a separate flower
8. the cherry tree’s blossoms opened today starting with the top of the tree
9. Eastern Towhees are ground feeders and hide in the bushes
And so much more……….
