Brown Creeper

Apr 15

In school today I saw a bird crawling up the side of a tree.
I thought to myself who could that be? Why that cute, little
bird was none other than a Brown Creeper! I am so happy to add
this bird to my Great Year List.

Thank you. Have a nice day!

Bufflehead! Bufflehead!

Apr 13

Today I saw in the river by our house, a black and white duck. I thought maybe it was a lost bird from the North Pole. But when I moved in closer to look I saw that the duck had a big, black and white head! I knew right away it was a BUFFLEHEAD my newest addition to my Great Year project.

I know Kirby did not see the Bufflehead! He lives in the forest on the top of the bluffs. There is no lake, river or stream any where near his house.
I know I am must be ahead of Kirby now with the Great Year total.

Birds of Prey List

Apr 08

turkey vulture

It is Monday, and again I am up very early before getting ready for school. It is 6AM again. Since I am up I wrote a list to help birdwatchers with their Great Year in Wisconsin.

What is a Great Year? A Great Year is counting all the kinds of birds you have seen in one year. Every birdwatcher starts their Great Year on January 1st.

Here is the list of BIRDS OF PREY in WISCONSIN:
(not in alphabetical order)

  • Turkey Vulture
  • Bald Eagle
  • Barred Owl
  • Great Horned Owl
  • Red-tailed Hawk
  • Osprey
  • Northern Harrier
  • Cooper’s Hawk
  • Eastern Screech Owl
  • Broad-winged Hawk
  • American Kestrel
  • Sharped Shinned Kestrel

The list is in order of my favorite Birds of Prey
to ones that are harder to see on my farm.

Kirby said he’s already seen an American Kestrel, but
I talked to the local ornithologist in Kickapoo Valley
and she said she hasn’t seen one this year.

I don’t know about that Kirby, or his robot.
