First, we went up the big hill by the big road:
|Me and Cam|
Once we turned down the street and got past the Giant's Castle, we hit the open meadow and saw this:
A bunny and a turkey! Can you see the bunny? He's hiding in the grass on the left!
Look at the turkey's reflection in the puddle!
I thought he looked really cool! Aunt Cammie thought he looked delicious.
Don't worry, bunny! We were more interested in the turkey!
|"Hey, Aunt Cam ..."|
|"... why did the turkey cross the road?"|
"Because it's DINNER time!"
Oh. Moving right along ...
Because of all the rain, lots of birdies were out getting drinks and stuff; we saw lots of things: a Chipping Sparrow, a female Meadowlark, and a flotilla of four Blue Winged Teal Ducks on the Kansas Ocean! And that's not all!
|"Come on over this way!"|
Look over on this bank:
Isn't he pretty?!? AND we saw a Great Blue Heron!
Or at least a pretty good Blue Heron.
Ha roo roo roo!
Mom got a bunch of pictures of him in flight (you can see the whole album from our walk at this link), and here he is coming in for a landing:
We were still laughing at my joke by the time we got back up in the housing area.
|"A 'pretty good Blue Heron' -- get it, Cammie?!?"|
|"Ha roowooroo! Good one, Maggie!"|
Thanks for coming on our walk with us! I hope you had a good time. Time to head to the water bowl - drinks are on me!
