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. 

Yesterday, around noon, the weather appeared spring-like. 
A group of teachers took a short walk in search of common birds.
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.

  1. When I started learning to identify different birds, I found myself in such awe of nature and its variety. Nice poem!

  2. I never went really crazy into bird watching, but still I enjoy seeing and identifying birds. I started at an early age realizing birds were not just birds, but were different species and liked different habitats. They are fun creatures to watch!

    1. Donna, it is great that you started young. I came to appreciate birds much later

  3. I have a bird feeder right outside my classroom. This reminds me to get some feed and let the little twitters come!

    1. Cool, it may be difficult to keep your students from gazing at them.
