Young naturalist's thoughts

This year my nephew Evan's summer job has been to help me out at the Wild Birds Unlimited store. He's been unboxing and building feeders, stacking and bagging seed, feeding mealworms, cleaning and a variety of other jobs to make my workload easier. He has multiple interests including sports, nature, art, and music. I asked if he would like to be a guest blogger. He passed along his latest work of art and some food for thought.

After working at the store, I walk home and see the birds sitting on the power and phone lines. They kind of remind me of musical notes on a staff.

I am getting to know the bird songs. Some are long and full of notes, others do a chip chip or twitter and there is the drumming sound the woodpeckers add.  The sound is cool and very beautiful.
