Our two oldest boys and I attended our first Audubon Society field trip yesterday at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. We had been up there last week to see some of the birds, and when I checked the schedule we were thrilled to find out there was a field trip scheduled.
The boys are awesome when it comes to spotting birds. If they see it move, twitch, or flutter they are on it with their binoculars very quickly and identification is very quick. With that said, all three of us are not as good when it comes to identifying them by sound. We thought a field trip with experienced birders would help, and it sure did.
The boys had a great time walking 1.2 miles to the top of the mountain, but they began to tire out a bit on the walk back down. Here are some of the photos from yesterday.
Kennesaw Mountain is less than 40 minutes from our house, and the boys were already talking about their next Audubon field trip before we pulled into the driveway. I think it’s safe to say they are quite serious about birding.
Wait until you see what they have planned later this week.
