Dear Noah,

This adorable little guy is a Winter Wren.  He only visits Louisiana in the winter because he really likes cold weather.  He nests waaaaay up north like in New York and Canada.  He is so tiny you could put him in your pocket.  Isn't he cute?

Butt trees

Dear Noah, They call these two trees the Butt Trees. Can you see why? Big Butt and Bigger Butt.


One day when I was paddling with my friends we saw this spider on the Big Butt tree.  It was bigger than two of your hands!  Yikes!  It's carrying its green egg sac.

 Love you! 

Dear Noah, now that you can read, I am going to try to update this blog for you more often.

Next time you come we will paddle here. I like this old rusty boat. It has a mystery.

Can't wait to see you!

Dear Noah,

It's only 17 days until I see you!  I can't wait.  I was thinking about how much fun we had at Ft. Bragg last year.  Do you remember?  We hunted for sea glass

and I'm pretty sure you found the biggest, prettiest piece!

And we went walking in the redwood forest and Eva kissed a slug!

Here are my pictures from last year.  I can't wait to do it again!

Hungry babies!

Dear Noah,

I found this nest of hungry Barn Swallow babies under a bridge.  Don't they look mad?  And then so hungry when Mom is feeding them!  She flies in and out constantly and stuffs food in their mouths.  I wonder how she figures out which kid to feed!?

Dear Noah,

Thought you might like to see this video of Puffins.  There are adults and babies; can you tell them apart?  At the very end is the sound I was telling you about.  That is the sound they make when they are in their little caves talking to each other!

Blue bird!

Dear Noah,
I saw this bird today that I knew your mom would love so this is one for you to show to your mom.  Cause it's blue, and awesome besides.  It's called an Indigo Bunting.  I tried to get a picture of a green bird for you, but it would not cooperate.  I'll keep trying!
