Hummingbird: Sir Falcon Fighter
Journal entry #2
We walked out the front door – and saw a battle in the sky!
A hummingbird was flying after a Prairie Falcon right overhead! The Falcon flew into our neighbor’s tree where the hummingbird continued to harass the Falcon- dive bombing it a few times before squeaking at it and flying away!!
Seeing a tiny hummingbird chase, dive bomb, and yell at a much larger Falcon was AMAZING! I quickly got my binoculars and watched the Falcon in the tree before he flew away!
I got my nature journal bag out of the car and immediately sketched the experience!
Eli was surprised at my drawing and he sang sweet praise to me 😍 and then he drew his own picture!
Today was full of surprises!! This morning while the boys were out fishing, I saw something else unusual!
A moth flew into a spiderweb. I moved closer to watch… when a wasp flew at the spiderweb… snatched the moth and flew away! I had no idea wasps robbed spiderwebs!!
