In May and June 2011, we re-nested 3 baby barred owls in our backyard.  This is the first owl, named Barry by the neighborhood children.
Read about Barry HERE.

In June 2011 we watched a robin build a nest and lay eggs.  One baby hatched.  See the baby's development HERE.

While driving in Kootenay National Park in Canada this Summer, we saw a mama and a baby moose blithely eating vegetation by the side of the road.

Tigra and Edward Bunk as babies.  (my daughter's kitties)

I'm linking up with my favorite teacher, Ms Jenny Matlock, as we work our way through the alphabet.  Please do go visit the other students, for you never know what gems you may find--humor, poignancy, information, visions of far away places, stuff you've never even dreamed of!  Check it out HERE.  You may even wish to join in yourself!  This week our letter is "Y."
