This weekend we did lots of birding. We went to visit my mom so we headed to a fish hatchery near her to see if we could spot some water fowl. We didn't have very much luck but we saw a kingfisher, gulls, geese, a kestrel, and a Heron. All the ducks flew off as soon as we got there.
Then we went to a nearby lake where you can buy food to feed the birds. The ducks were eating out of the kids' hands. It made us all miss our ducks!
Then, Sunday we went to the Sandhill Crane Festival again. It was fine but it's a long drive. We found another wildlife management area on the way home and explored it. The kids had the best time at the beach area on the river. It was hard to pull them away. We were all so thankful for the warmth and sunshine!
