The Mysterious Bird of Black and White

April 23, 2015 - 1:11pm -- karenp

     We set out to look for beautiful birds at  the dusk of dawn, as we approached the doors we saw nothing! Thinking that it would be a boring day, we were right until...

BOOM! Out of nowhere came a beautiful bird of black and white! A WHITE CROWNED SPARROW! We've never seen such a thing in the history of birding!!!

The Mysterious Feathers

March 17, 2015 - 3:12pm -- karenp

This time we went a different way. Not to the bird feeder. We waked around outside. We spotted a pile of feathers. We think something ate it or it hit something. We also think it might of lost some of its feathers. The long feathers were gray, and the small under feathers were white. We think it might be a Quail or a Dove.
