Bird Fest

We had the chance to visit Bird Fest in Edmonds today. I wasn't sure what to expect, but they had a bunch of activities for kids and displays for adults as well. We played a migration game, where we pretended to be birds migrating, and the kids did some coloring and made bird feeders. We got to pet real animal pelts, and the fellow who had them told the kids all about them. I was surprised that the fox was so soft and the raccoon was so coarse.

Gabriel was really interested in the display about a local bird banding project. I have a feeling we'll be checking that study out some more and seeing if we can get him involved somehow. We came home with piles of papers to look through and some web sites to dig through. We didn't go to any of the bird watching trips, since we were pretty tired from our trip yesterday. I think we need a day off tomorrow!
