After the fishing program we grabbed a snack and went right away to a bird banding program. That was really neat. Catching birds made up for not catching any fish!
The presenters put up a net near the feeders and caught a few birds. They banded each and then let people from the audience release the birds. This was really neat for me especially because our boys are studying birds in Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day (Apologia) by Jeanie Fulbright. (yeah, I do look for opportunities to squeeze in school just about anywhere)
This guy was being funny and "rocked" the bird back and forth in Zeke's hand while pretending to sing a lullaby to put it to sleep. :)
After this program, it was finally time to set up camp. Once the tents were up, air mattresses inflated, sleeping bags in place, what do you do? I know *I* was read for a nap...and that's just what Mercy and I did. That left time for the kids to go exploring, supper, s'mores, and finally it was bedtime.
