My first nature journal entry 📓 🐦
This morning, we went and ate donuts at the park! (I highly recommend this!!)
Well- while we were there, I took out my binoculars to look for birds!
At first, I was very unsuccessful- I could hear the birds… I just couldn’t see them!
But then- I saw two birds hopping under a tree. I looked at them through my binoculars and initially thought it was a pair of Mourning Doves… but then… I saw red on the head…
I got to watch a mother Northern Flicker feed her fledging! I couldn’t contain my excitement!! I was ecstatic!
I felt like a “real-life” bird watcher 😀!!!!
The first thing I did when I got home was make a journal entry!!
I would consider this my first nature journal entry because I didn’t just draw a random generic picture- I actually tried to draw what I saw and record the events that occurred in the wild!
In order to be prepared for our daily outdoor adventure/nature journaling, I got some supplies together!
- A cute suitcase bag
- Bird, insects, flower, tree books
- Oil pastels (wrapped in aluminum foil for safe keeping)
I laminated my journal entry to use as a front cover to remind myself of the joy I felt today!! 😍
