My favorite authors is a series. Each chapter talks about one author. One section of a chapter is in each post.

Chapter One Section One

Welcome to The Facts I Know About Animals. Hi. My name is John James Audubon (just kidding).

First off we will go to the Did You Know corner:

  1. Did you know when you see some vultures going in circles it is riding a heat wave, called thermals looking for food?
  2. Did you know that blue jays are not really blue it’s the sun reflecting of their feathers?
  3. Did you know I think Marguerite Henry rocks?

O.K., I know I’m getting off of  the subject.

That is all in the Did You Know corner. Know off to the Here’s The Facts corner.

  1. The Arctic Tern it  is the bird that sees more sun than any other bird. It flies from the north pole to the south pole when it is summer in the south pole. When it is summer in the north pole it flies there.
  2. Some birds migrate a thousand of miles or more.

Well that’s all for today folks. Bye Bye. See you next time.

The Bear

Backyard garden

We gave our dog away. So I decided to start a garden. I am going to show you what we are going to do.
We are going to fill in the holes our dog dug.

We are going to tear down this playground and doghouse.

We are going to keep this little box so we can grow herbs.

We are going to uproot these logs and move them so we can change it into a bird garden and study birds.

We are going to plant small Chinese privets in the bird garden.

We are going to put these into the bird garden.

I will keep blogging on this when we start doing these things.
