So we’re just hunkering down and only going out for groceries when needed. Because we homeschool it doesn’t affect our school at all. One upside to staying at home is I’ve beenContinue reading “Yard birding”

Birding during COVID-19

COVID-19 has been shaking the world, but if you have your trust put in the right place you need not have any fears!

During the winter there are many migrants with the highest numbers being several thousand Lesser Whistling Ducks (most common duck in Bangladesh).

Historical: Kenya November 2019

“I can’t believe we’re actually here!” I thought as our plane touched down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya! We had been planning this vacation since early in the year to visit my aunt and uncle who live in Nakuru. Of course I was excited to be able to spend some timeContinue reading “Historical: Kenya November 2019”
