Activity 2: I saw birds from the wading group (egrets and herons), the seabird group (pelican. cormorant), and the songbird group (Vermilion Flycatcher). I had help! I did a kayak intro to bird-watching tour this past weekend at Watson Lake in Prescott. They said it was unusual to see a pelican there, so that was cool!
Activity 3: I like mourning doves because they are everywhere and easy to find and photograph, which makes them wonderful to practice photography on! (I recently got a camera.)
