Bird Count

While at Camp Patmos, we walked down to see how they did the bird count on the island.  The gentleman who banded the birds was super friendly and answered many questions from all of us.  He taught us how to identify birds and how to tell if the bird was a yearling.  After teaching visitors how to properly hold a bird, we released the birds that they had banded. We went back a few times and enjoyed the chance to see many different birds.


Potato Creek

Mark and Allan both had a few days off while the older girls were gone.  We enjoyed spending the day at Potato Creek.

We took a picnic lunch and then went exploring in the woods,  looking for bald eagles and, for the first time ever, let the kids play on the beach.  It was a fun, and very tiring afternoon!
