Apr6_Shoreline2

We don’t have to go far to see amazing birds in their native environment. San Francisco Bay is home to many bird species, and many more come to winter in our area. The wintering birds went home already, but Anna, papa and grandparents could see some baby geese (at least I think those are geese) with their parents during their latest visit to Shoreline Park iApr6_Shoreline1n Mountain View. If you are interested in birds, you can see some of its residents and visitors in this photo gallery.

Anna was mostly interested in using her binoculars. She loves new places, and her first question every morning is, where will we go today? We hope to spend a lot more time outside this summer – playing games and learning about this beautiful planet Earth and its creatures not just from books but from all our senses.

Yes, those are geese - at least I think so =)

I just found out that you can submit bird count checklists all year round at ebird.org - maybe that could be a fun activity to do with Anna?

Look how cute she looks with her binoculars?

Have the sea lions returned to San Francisco?

Canadian Geese :)

We did some bird, and animal, spotting this week, too. And, the binoculars were a big hit.

Yep Canadian Geese! We love to watch birds around here, and have had several sitings of our Eagles.

I love the picture of Anna with her binoculars!

She's adorable! We are lucky enough to live by a lake that has lots of birds for my sons to check out too! Thanks for stopoing by my blog for the UBP! I hope you found some useful ways to save money!

Very cool. You would think that in Phoenix there wouldn't be very many opportunities to see birds, but there is a pond behind our library that has tons of birds. I better take the kids some Friday before it gets too hot.
