A small but enthusiastic group gathered for a nature walk BINGO game in LaBonte Park on Saturday morning, June 10. The weather was perfect, with sun and only the slightest breeze, and the group took a leisurely walk around the lake with many stops to look closer and talk about the natural world around us in the park. We spied many of the items on our BINGO cards, including irises and other flowers, cottonwood and spruce trees and seed cones, bees, damselflies, several birds, and at the end of the walk, in the Feeding Laramie Valley yard (of course!) a rabbit and squirrel.
Birds observed: several red-winged blackbirds, house finches, American crows, grackles and house sparrows, four California gulls, three mallard ducks, grackle, two nighthawks, two American goldfinches and a Eurasian collared dove.
Families, keep your eyes on the calendar for future outings geared toward kids.
