I saw a Cedar Waxwing!

Apr 15

Yesterday morning I was looking towards the group of pine trees near the stream by our house. I was watching the sun shining through the branches.

All of a sudden I saw a flitter, and some dark object hop and plunge back into the pines. I grabbed my binoculars, and aimed them towards the branches where I saw the object last. I waited. I waited some more still longer until I saw his head peer out of the branches. When he rested on a branch closer to me I realized it was a CEDAR WAXWING! Another bird I can add to my GREAT YEAR LIST.

When Red Squirrels Attacks

Apr 10

It was 4:37 PM when Myles and I were walking slowly up the hill
and onto the gravel path that leads to our house. Myles meets me
everyday by our mailbox when I come home from school.

Today, Myles was extra grumpy, or growl-ie, his teeth were showing.
I didn’t know what to expect as we got closer to the front of the
house. Last night I opened the front door quickly and threw bird
seed onto the stump near the porch.

All of a sudden we heard a branch crack and leaves crunch. We looked in front of us and there was the evil, red squirrel. He is much bigger than I thought. He almost looks as big as Myles. I thought we might see the red squirrel again so I had packed a small bag full of bird seed in my pocket. I threw the bag onto the ground near the squirrel as we ran by him and up the steps onto our porch. I could not open the front door quick enough, but the squirrel was busy eating the bird seed.

I don’t know what will happen when I come home from school tomorrow.
