Last week I took my little bird lover and her brother down to Pointe Mouillee State Game Area for some serious birdwatching. The weather was incredible and the kids had a blast in the woods and thickets. The swampy bits were still really frozen so we walked along them looking at all the birdhouses. I might be blessed with some hikers here. Also note the binoculars slung around the neck. She's serious about this stuff.


We saw two great blue herons, several cardinals, a woodpecker, a robin, too many types of ducks and geese and shorebirds to name, and on the mammal side: a real live beaver.
