This past week, which also happened to be my last week of school (!), I led three bird walks for kindergarten through second grade multiage classrooms in Whittier Elementary School in Oak Park. All three days I came in during mid-afternoon and taught a quick lesson about birds and then took the kids on a walk. The first walk's highlight was a male BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER, the second walk was quieter because of high temperatures, and the third walk's highlight was this beautiful male AMERICAN KESTREL (a type of small falcon), only the fourth time I have ever seen this species in Oak Park! It was also great working with the kids!
