Two Artistic Monday Mysteries

Img704

Every spring, I read my Celery Farm children's books to Mrs. Jones' class at the Temple Hill School in Newburgh, and I also showed them photos that Jerry Barrack had taken of other birds at the Celery Farm over a decade ago.

One student thought the bird above looked like "a Chinese chicken."

Another called the bird below a "Mohawk bird." 

The following day they decided to drew these birds from memory.

What real-life bird looks like a Chinese chicken?

Which looks like it has a Mohawk?

A Shout-out to Troop 59!

Marsh Warden Mike Limatola reports: IMG_4081

A huge thanks to the Allendale Troop 59 Boy Scouts for wood-chipping about 100 feet of very muddy trail last Saturday!!!
 
(If you've sloshed through that section, you'll really appreciate what the scouts did.)
