See & Hear Nature Challenge #6

Hear kitty kitty kitty…Nah, I’m just kidding! Gray cat

My good friend Jane Kirkland is stopping by to help us all learn how to identify catbirds. While they may not be the showiest tweeter on the block, their calls are one of the easiest to learn to identify.

Children and other novice birders will delight in learning to identify species by their calls — and a catbird is the perfect place to start.

To learn more about this species, visit eNature.

See & Hear Nature Challenge #4

Q:  How cam you tell if a goose is Canadian?

A: It drinks beer & watches hockey. (Ha!)

Oooooh, it’s nesting season — which means babies are on the way! Children (and who am I kidding — adults!) love to see baby animals.

Take the Canada Goose challenge with Jane & Jake.

To learn more about these amazing (honk!) birds, visit eNature.

Frolic Friday With “The Other You”

Happy Frolic Friday!

Late October in Binghamton, NY (I)

Join my friend @cheecker and I this weekend and head for the forest! To help you get fired up, watch this brief PSA. (You know how much I love to use my outside voice!)

Whether you are a parent or not, time spent outdoors in nature is part of a healthy, happy lifestyle. If there are kids in your world, making an effort to introduce them to the wonders of nature will pay off in so many ways!

This weekend, why not…

As always, it doesn’t matter what you do, just get out there and have some fun. And don’t forget, be nice to the squirrels. I just might be watching.  ;-)
