Back to 6th grade

I started the day with an early morning visit to the Saint Andrew’s Sewanee 6th grade campout. Despite the early hour, the energy level was high. The birds were also active: in just a few minutes of quiet listening we heard nearly ten different species, right from the campground. We took a stroll around the lake and into the woods to find some more.

Pointing at a displaying red-winged blackbird. So what if we’re not all pointing in the same direction?

Thank you to Cindy Potter for the invitation to join the group, and to Cindy, Doug Burns, and Reid Fisher who camp out with the students. For many students, this is their first experience of camping. I was glad to learn that the whip-poor-wills had serenaded the campers over night.
