Spring is in the air here at Cotton-Top Hills. My girls love the wildflowers popping up around the place.
They also enjoy watching the wildlife. Recently, we have been sitting at our front window each morning watching all the birds coming and going. They are quick to notice the birds are coming in pairs.
This always starts some interesting discussions. They talk about how the quail, for instance, come in their little coveys through the fall and winter, but as the weather warms they begin to pair off. They watch as males scare off potential suitors and feel sorry for the single quail without a mate.
As the weather gets warmer they know to watch for the sun loving reptiles that start stirring.
Enjoy the sweet days of Spring and all the learning experiences they provide.
