Naturalist and Nature Rocks Homer founder Carmen Field, joined by USFWS Public Programs Supervisor Poppy Benson, led an April 26th Let's G.O.! Family Bird Walk for 12 youngsters, 8 moms and a grandmother. The group strolled on a boardwalk bordering Beluga Slough in downtown Homer, stopping often to hear and watch birds of all shapes and sizes. The morning's highlight was undoubtedly a giant flock of Greater White-fronted Geese flying right over everyone's heads. Birds seen through binoculars and a spotting scope included both Greater White-fronted and Canada Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Green-winged Teals, an Eurasian Wigeon, American Wigeons, Mallards, Northern Pintails, and Bald Eagles. This free event was also a Week of the Young Child event.
