8.4.14 - Birding 101- KidSummer - Cape Cod Museum of Natural History
Brewster, MA

If you haven't thought of it yet, kids can almost always teach you something about birds.  This week I am fortunate again to be able to have a fun bunch of KidSummer Bird Nerds In Training, both on the trail, and in and around the museum with me.  We made our Bird-oculars today and headed out on the John Wing Trail.  Here is our list:
