Holly did give me the nickname, "Grandma Bird"...


SO! I have been reading about birds a lot lately...going through field guides and such and thought it would be fun to highlight a new bird each week on my blog. I am in NO WAY an expert, but I enjoy learning about different kinds of birds.

Since I though of it today, I will make Thursday the day for learning about birds! I don't have a cool name for this but am open to suggestions...

This week I give you...
a Greenland White-Fronted Goose!! If you click on the link you can learn more through Wikipedia.
I really like this bird for some reason. Maybe it's the bird's coloring. The orange feet, legs, and bill and its pretty brown and white feathers make me think of autumn, which is OH SO NEAR! I also like this bird because one of the websites where I read about this species said that Greenland White-Fronted Geese are "especially acrobatic" in flight! I really wish I could discover what exactly this means for myself. I bet it is pretty cool!

Thanks! We had a really fun day but I FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES! I am a little sad about this because I have taken them the past two years...but I don't think I will soon forget. My mom sent us a card with $20.00 so we planned activities so that we only spent $20. It was a lot of fun!
