Sunny skies were calling us outside... and on we went to our Nature Scavenger Hunt - we didn't have to go far. We stayed right in the side yard just north of the school. The point to be made about that is that you truly don't have to go very far if you're in a green space to experience nature on a scale that you can personally appreciate. Some of the entries the students discovered and recorded are in the photos below. We even had a brief visit from a couple of Song Sparrows. Nice sightings! (double-click photos to enlarge)

We discussed this "dead" tree and its significance to the birds
Lichens on the tree branches, harmless or not?

Who wants to hold the stink bug next?
For some reason this stink bug just didn't want
to leave the back of my hand...
