Slice of Life Day 18 A little birdie
Throughout the month of March, I am participating in the Slice of Life Challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. The goal is to write a daily post during the month. This is my second year to participate.

Soon we found this colorful guy.
He would not move from his perch, even when we walked under the high branch.
Teachers were able to locate and identify several common birds.
Mourning dove, robin, sparrow, red-winged blackbird and crow were spotted.
Hopefully the teachers will return to their classrooms, searching
for birds common to their schoolyards.
