Red-Winged Blackbird! Yes, I know this is an extremely common bird, but we have never seen one before. To be honest I didn't even know what it was. But Noah J certainly did! This boy prides himself on knowing every single bird that comes into our yard, male and female! Every time I think he is yanking my chain we pull out bird field guide and he is always right. :) So we stopped what we were doing and pulled out our Prisma colors and nature journals. When we first started our nature journals Noah really HATED them. Mostly because I was forcing him to write in it. But this year I decided I really wanted him to develop a love of recording the things he finds interesting in God's creation, so I told him I would be his scribe. Ta da!! We suddenly have a boy who loves nature journaling. :) Love homeschooling outside in the springtime weather!
