July started out with a trip to northern Indiana to visit family for the holiday. While taking Wallace for a little walk at a local park, we saw this Black-crowned night heron. It was the first time eitherDavid or I had ever seen one!
Here is a glimpse of one of our Tiger Day 2016 graphics we have been working on this month. We've put together 5 small illustrated infographics to share. Watch for them later this week!
Our neighborhood birds planted some sunflowers for us this summer! This is one of the biggest. Since the seeds came from a bag of birdseed, we ended up with all different varieties. We are definitely going to plant some again next summer!
It has been so hot this month! We haven't taken any long hikes but have managed to make it to Lake Griffy a few times. After a few days of rain there were an abundance of mushrooms all over the trail.
Wallace has been making new friends at the dog park. There are a few that we are on a first name basis with, Simba, Malcolm, and Sombra.
We were able to help document the annual West Nile virus vaccinations at the Indiana Raptor Center this month. It is a big undertaking to protect the 30 resident birds plus the 50+ that are passing through the center as patients.
