The little boy in this video is Jackson Brace, one of my grandsons. He’s fifteen now, and taller than his sister Brooklyn, who is also in the video. He has gone on to other interests, but he can still name any bird when asked. As you'll see, his sister is not that excited about watching birds, but she was a great sport.
We were at a popular wildlife refuge in Ridgefield, WA, where birders come from all over the country.
Next week, Terry and I are going to go on a group, night walk at the sactuary and see how the night owls live.
Getting kids interested in nature is a great way to spend quality time with them, especially in the summer.
