This past Saturday I attended my first group walk with my mom. It was held at the Overland Park Arboretum. It was pretty chilly due to the frost of the previous night, but I had a great time. I saw a new life bird---a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Woo Hoo! We even got to see it swoop aroud trying to catch it's breakfast. Unfortunately I was so excited and distracted by the Hawk that I forgot entirely to try and ID the little bird it was chasing.
I really enjoyed the walk and look forward to finding other bird walks to join. It was wonderful to meet so many friendly people and hear identification tips from the more experienced birders. Hopefully I can attend another one soon!
