Connecticut Day

Our Google Map of Our Trip

I got 5 lifers and 8 year birds. I went to Connecticut and found a Wilson's Snipe and I spotted a Peregrine Falcon and it had a bird in it talons and it was an blackbird. The Greater White-fronted Goose and Killdeer. The next stop we were going to find a Northern Goshawk. Me and daddy went in the woods and they called and we were flying in the air. We also ate pizza. We also found some Green-winged Teal and some Mallards. We had a scope to find a Trumpeter Swan it was far away and my dad had to take a picture with his phone. We then went to see a Pink-footed Goose and Snow Geese were there. Then we went to a farm and there was a Ring-necked Pheasant. I was having fun and I was happy the whole time but I got tired.

Pretty Bird

                                                 Our Google Map Trip

me and my daddy went to see a Painted Bunting. At first we saw two cats fighting and then we went into the yard and had to waited. we had juncos, House Sparrows and the squirrel keep scaring all the bird away. then the bunting came and we first got on the feeder a house sparrow was blocking him from pictures. then a bunch of people came and a lady said we could come into her house and we did. and we also saw photos of the Painted Bunting as a juvenile. the lady has pictures of it from last year. next stop I spotted a Red-tailed hawk eating a bird. Also we went up to a different spot and saw a Snowy Owl. On our way home we went to see the Barnacle Goose it was just like the same thing as last time. he kept coming over and the Canada Geese were scaring him away and after we were gonna leave we saw a chicken so close to us and a cow wanted to leave in the car with us.
