Redhead Trip!

Our Adventure

Daddy and me were going to try and find some Pine Siskins and we didn't know where to go and we just went to a random spot in Rhode Island or Connecticut so we just went home. Then I went home and grammy came and got me and we went to go get a Redhead. At the Redhead spot grammy and me walked along a trail in the woods. We were looking for the bird in the lake through the scope and we found one Redhead and a couple mallards and some other ducks!

Townsend's Solitaire Trip!

Our Adventure!

Me and Daddy were driving to southern Mass to get the Townsend's Solitaire that was in a cemetery. The weather was rainy and we saw it on top of a tree. Daddy recorded the bird calling. It was a lifer! I also seen a Eurasian Green-winged Teal. Then we drove to a nature area (Allen's Neck) and we were walking in the nature area then we finally saw a Winter Wren!  Then we went to the beach and we were looking for a Snowy Owl, but we didn't find it and we walked a lot. We also found no special gulls. Then we were driving out from the beach and we saw a white bird. Then we saw it was a Great Egret!
