Today we headed south to the Maine Wildlife Park. This is a great place to visit. In fact, we started our school year there (Day #4). If you want to compare how much the kids have grown, click here to go to the Day #4 post.
We began our time there with a class on owls & then dissecting owl pellets. Here are some photos..
On to dissecting….each family was given 3-4 pellets each. Conductor went with my nephew and they worked together and Lego-Man and Happy worked with me.
This is an albino raccoon. When Miss H saw these two (they share a cage) she was studying them more intently than I realized. She asked me at one point, “Where’s his sunglasses?” and pointed to the albino one. ;-)
While walking through the park we came across some wild birds that had decided to stop by for a visit. We first came across this duck in a tiny pond. We were able to get very close to it.
Then we followed this Canadian goose and a gaggle of geese as they walked from the bear habitat down to the same little pond. They took a little drink and a little swim before we moved back up to see the bears.
