Owls












I LOVE these sketches!!


Goose is studying owls! We've seen some beautiful owls at the local zoo. I found an article about some burrowing owls here in the Bay Area, so Goose sent an email to the mayor's office asking the city to protect these wonderful birds. She made some adorable sketches of some of her favorite owls. I found an amazing book about a student who adopts an owl named wesley and falls in love with him. You can find it here. Goose read this book pretty quickly. She, too, fell in love with Wesley!
We also watched a great movie called Owl Cam: The Hidden World. This is a fantastic look at the day to day life of an owl family. Highly recommended!!!
We went looking for some more local burrowing owls at a park near our house. No luck yet, though. Next we will be reading some owl mythology and looking at owls in art.

  1. Way to go Goose! That's great that she wrote a letter to the mayor expressing her concern about the owls. It sounds like she's learning a lot.
