We managed a short listening walk last week as our first attempt at the Outdoor Hour Challenge. I can't say that we were outdoors for an hour this time, alas it's the rainy season (and I don't mean tropical rain).
In our listening walk we heard many birds, saw many birds, and a few squirrels. Our yard here is very small, and mostly shrubs and a pathetic excuse for a grass area, sigh. It's a far cry from our previous acreage, sniff, but we're making the most of it!
Violet is the only one who managed a sketch for her journal:
I like how she watercolored it afterward. Not bad for a rainy past week, here's hoping for some sunshine soon :)
