My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Sarah Hall!

Sarah Hall (mrssarahhall, #5223) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Birds Merit Badge!

“I spent a day researching birds native to my area and selected several I would like to see. I made a wish list that I hope I can attach here with photos of the birds I would like to see and some of the information I learned about them through my research.

I really enjoyed learning about the birds. I didn’t realize that a lot of birds look different while they are mating. I particularly enjoyed reading about the sage grouse mating rituals, called strutting. I bet this is where the term “Strutting one’s stuff” came from! Owls are my favorite animal and it was challenging for me to not make an entire wish list of owls, of course I had to include one!”Wishlist_Page_11

    We have several species of Owls that live here in the city. There is a Barn Owl who lives about somewhere and when he sits in the tree in the early morning, he is surrounded by a swirl of Bluejays protesting his presence. His big sweet face looks so innocent but that is not a descriptor the other birds would use!! When he tires of the heckling , he just flies away on that amazing wing span!
