6.30.14 - Cape Cod Museum Of Natural History - KidSummer Birding 101
John Wing Trail - Brewster, MA

Earlier this year it was asked of me if I would be interested in contributing to KidSummer, the museum's day camp program. I jumped at the opportunity and this was our first week of Birding 101.  What a great bunch of KidSummer Kids!  We initially needed to get to know each other of course & everyone has a personal story about a bird.  We constructed our birdoculars and discussed tips for improving our bird identification skills.  It was a hot summer day and it's always interesting which birds we discover along our field walk.
Here is our list: (click on photos to enlarge)

Ring-billed Gull
Downy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Tree Swallow
Barn Swallow
Black-capped Chickadee
Gray Catbird
Pine Warbler
Song Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
Red-winged Blackbird
Common Grackle
American Goldfinch
