The Deer Story

Filed under: Nature — Connor @ 6:50 pm


I saw a big mother deer and I think it is getting ready to have a baby because it is big. It is probably bigger than my head. That stomach is really huge, it’s probably bigger than your head.

I Saw a Deer

The deer is laying in the grass. It’s eating leaves. I think it’s having a baby. Dad saw the deer first, before I did. I didn’t know the deer was there. I didn’t know it was there until dad told me it was really, but before Tegan and I and Connor saw two deers that is a mommy and a daddy. I think that’s the same deer, but it’s only one and I didn’t know where that deer came from.

The Bullhead Story

Filed under: Fishing,Nature,Playing — Connor @ 6:28 pm

I caught a bullhead and I did not know until I picked up the bag and felt a bullhead swimming around in it; and I moved it to a beautiful pool. We gave it some clams and we watched it and we putted it and we scooped out of the water and put in the new water, then we dumped the dirty water out into a different pool. Then we saw a dead bullhead.

Keith gave me a windshield wiper, two nets for me and Rowan, and a box. We said thank you.

We also saw a hummingbird.

The Birds of Prey Story

Owl Feathers

I saw some Western Screech-Owl feathers and I found them under a tree log that was flat on top. Underneath it was some owl feathers. Owls eat mice and rats and rabbits. Some owls hunt at night like the Western and Great and Barred Owl. The Snowy Owl and the Barn Owl hunt at morning. Owls are really special to me because they eat mice and rats and rabbits. That helps us live.

Connor with a Bird Nest

I got to see a nest and I brung it home and you know how I did it? I climbed up a big rock and I went through some high bushes, I took some leaves out, it was up there for ten months and eleven years. I lifted up and took the leaves out, then I went out another way.

Dad took a Callepitter Picture

Filed under: Nature — Rowan @ 7:22 pm

Dad saw a callepitter and that was cool, and we got to climb on some rocks and I got to run across where the water was. I got to go in the forest where there was a trail, and dad didn’t like that because I was leading home by myself and that wasn’t very nice and I was sorry. Then we went home together and I tried to pet a Pine Siskin and I couldn’t because they didn’t come back, so I went inside and stayed in there and played for a long, long time, and that was nice because they didn’t come back. I watched WonderPets because I didn’t play outside because mom letted me and that was very nice, and that was good, because I liked that so much. We watch a lot a lot of t.v. and then now it’s night time and I’m doing a weblog and now we played a hat game and now we played a different hat game and now I was doing what I was doing and now I was very, very happy and now I was crying before and now I’m better, and now I like it because I was there, and now I am back from school, and I got to do lots of stuff at preschool, and preschool was very much fun, and it was very nice of them, because they let me do very much stuff, and I even got to play on the computer, and that was very, very much fun, because I liked it, and it was very, very nice because let me have a turn, because someone took my place because I got to go after them, and that was very, very nice because I got to play again, because my teacher’s took that off and I got to play that again, and I very much liked it.

I very liked it when dad saw a callepitter on a very high branch and I liked it because I did it, and that was very nice of him. Picture are below of the callepitter.


The Birds Story

Filed under: Nature — Rowan @ 7:14 pm

I think I saw a Red-tailed Hawk and I also got to pet a Pine Siskin and a Pine Siskin came close to my knee. I found two dead Bald Eagles. I got to see a bird’s nest… and, I got to see three swans… and I saw a Bald Eagle and I heard about a starling with broken wing and it healed up the wrong way, now it can’t fly anymore. It will have to stay where it is.

The Pine Siskin and the Redpoll Story

Filed under: Nature — Connor @ 8:07 pm


I saw seven Pine Siskins and some Redpolls, and they were in the gate that we put up so the cat won’t get the birds as easily, because we had the same cat coming around and killing birds two times.

There was a Chestnut-backed Chickadee landed on my head. I did not know, but Rowan did know.

A Chestnut-backed Chickadee flew really close to me and the Chestnut-backed Chickadee likes the sunflower seeds a lot. One flew right in front of me when I was on the porch standing up.

Dad Saw a Mink

Filed under: Nature — Rowan @ 7:39 pm

Mink at Totem Park

Today dad saw a mink and I got to see it, that was cool, and Connor too. We found tracks and it went in holes and hide under rocks, and it goes in holes to trick other things that eats minks. The mink sit and ran to the tree, and sitted again and ran, sit, and sit, and sit, and it sitted, and it sitted, and it sitted. We were headed on our way home and we got to see it by the river.
