Two of our granddaughters spent the weekend with us. We snowshoed, followed animal tracks, did some sledding and Silje got to hand feed chickadees at a friend’s house.
You can see the wonder in her eyes as this chickadee landed on her hand. When we got home she ran into the house and told her grandma that “This was the best day of my life”. You know it isn’t but it shows the excitement that can be instilled in kids when they get outside and have a close encounter with wildlife.
I have had four kids make this same statement over the years and all have been over wildlife encounters.
