Ms. Pat's Nature Club is a blog for anyone who is a nature nut and loves nature, no matter what age you are. I hope you will let me know what you think and give me feedback. I love to hear from my friends!

Critter Watch

The crows were cawing and the geese were honking when I went outside to get the paper today. I saw a big V of geese in the air, heading toward Texas, or maybe Mexico. Some of the trees are starting to change color. Even though it's still warm, Fall is in the air!

Critter Watch

It's a sparkling, cool morning in early September. A family of wild turkeys wandered past our yard and I saw a flock of birds flying South. Are they leaving early, or just going to the Fair???
