Rogers Homeschoolers at Lake Leatherwood

Rose Nystrom brought her three homeschooled sons, Arthur, John and Charles, and their friend Jordan to find some birds at Lake Leatherwood. WE got great looks at Indigo Bunting, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Northern Parula, Mourning Dove and others. Heard a Yellow-billed Cuckoo really well, but couldn't get it to give us a look. We spent about two hours wandering around, ending at the bird blind, and then sat at the CCC picnic pavilion and went over the Arkansas checklist and learned some ideas about the pattern of bird migration and seasonal occurance.
