    Route 66 Flywheelers ~Catoosa, OK

    Sunday, November 12th, 2017

    This event has been going on since 1991!

    It was a lot bigger than I thought and the people were so friendly.

    Great event to bring kids.

    So many of the people loved kids!

    They had fun little things set up just for the kids that came.

    Some of the girls thought the gas engines smelled…

    Living history event at the USS Batfish ~Muskogee, OK

    Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

    Last Saturday was the living history event at the USS Batfish in Muskogee!

    boys

    That means that the museum and submarine were filled with people dressed up in period clothes to answer questions.

    I really enjoy being around others who appreciate history.

    Bird Watching

    Friday, January 30th, 2015

    January and February are peak Eagle watching months in Oklahoma.

    You can see more information that I gave last year, here.

    eaglewatch

    We went to River City Park again to check out the nest.

    landing

    The boys and I have actually gone three times this year already.

    I would rather we learn about an animal while in it’s habitat instead of inside looking at a book or the computer.

    eagleland

    We do bring ID books or books on that animal if I have them though.

    close

    The boys were able to get close enough to this one to actually get an idea of size.

    When it took off we thought it would break the branch!

    nest

    I used my zoom lens for all of these so we were actually still pretty far away.

    guard

    After viewing the eagles for a while we went down to the river to check out other birds.

    pelicans

    There were a lot of pelicans!

    kesteral

    The boys and I also drove over to the Keystone Dam to see what birds were around there and found an American Kestrel!

    unknown

    I am not sure about this guy.

    Maybe a Juvenile Eagle?

    Anyone know?

    We usually ID birds using the Merlin Bird ID app.

    It is my favorite educational app!

    You put in information like date, place, size of the bird, color of the bird, and what it was doing, and it gives you a list of possibilities!

    It is great!

    What is your favorite wildlife to view?

    Do you have only certain times of the year you can view them?

    If you go eagle watching, I do recommend you bring binoculars.

    It helps the kids really see the birds!
