Hey, bird watchers!  Image result for bird watcher images

Have you been thinking about different beaks, feet, and nests?  

What observations have you made?

Here is a cool treat for you and your families.  This link from The Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor will let you watch the ospreys* that have arrived back to their nest. Their names are Marshal and Lily.   https://wetlandsinstitute.org/education/osprey-camera/     

 

       Also for my enthusiastic bird observers:  This is a wonderful FREE resource from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (app can also be downloaded).  You've got to try it out!!!  (Parents, your kids are going to LOVE this.)   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/
