It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! Red Edition

Jots about the bird…

  • It’s a House finch.
  • Just the males are red.
  • It’s is my favorite bird lately.
  • He looks like he is hiding behind that branch.
  • Ironically, he is nesting in a decorative eagle above my garage!

Jots about the plane…

  • It is a single engine propeller plane.
  • Mr. Doodles and Jots wouldn’t get into that plane if his life depended on it.
  • Airplanes stay in the air through lift primarily generated by wing shape.
  • I have a hard time accepting that any plane can stay in the air.
  • Planes seem like they are moving slow until you try to catch a picture!

    • I may do a printable for one – it might get my kids interested but my daughter says she wants to make a fish journal and my son a doggy journal!

    • Would love to get more photos of these but they always fly away! Hopefully I will get a picture of their eggs soon!
