Suburban Birdwatching #SOL15


Out of absolutely nowhere, Cody asked me to take him bird watching. This is something we have never done. At first his cousin was not interested, but when we were half a block away from the house he ran to catch up with us.  


When we saw bird poop on the sidewalk, we knew we were on the right track!


When we realized there was a compass on the binoculars, we had some big decisions to make regarding our direction. Connor thought since it was a chilly day the birds would be searching for warmth, so we should head south. Cody thought we should head north because he was worried about getting lost. Since the expedition was Cody's idea, we went north.


Sometimes being a mom is so much fun. :)

  1. You have certainly captured the joy in the little things in life - slow down and make the most of every moment. I love how kids think, "Connor thought since it was a chilly day the birds would be searching for warmth, so we should head south. Cody thought we should head north because he was worried about getting lost." Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful day.

  5. Such fun! I've often thought that I should get a bird guidebook. It would be fun to birdwatch and figure out what species we're looking at. Have a great day!
