We had a pleasant walk along the river today! Mrs. Forderhase joined us as we walked from
our school to the MK Nature Center. Along the way we heard Song Sparrows in the wild rose bushes.
As we approached the river, the air was full of song! The ponds behind our school had several Red-Winged Blackbirds
marking their territory and perhaps showing-off a little for the females.
Along the river's edge we observed male Mallards and a Coot. Of course, there were Canada Geese! A pair appeared along
the banks of the river, so we gave them plenty of room as we passed-by.
A pair of Wooducks were nesting on a man-made platform set up in the pond of the Nature Center. We needed to get back to school and on our
way back one of our teams observed a pair of Northern Flickers flying up river.
We were welcomed back to school by the Red-Tailed Hawk who has a nest in a tree across the street from our school.
What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful Spring day!
