We have been truly enjoying experiencing Spring while living next to the river. There are birds around here that we never saw at previous homes. Just this morning we figured out that some of the quite black and white ducks on the water are "Buffleheads". We found out what they were from our trusty "Birds of Minnesota" book. That has been a very useful tool in our homeschooling experience.
