The Flying Fish took a bird walk up to the Potrero Hill community garden. They saw white crown sparrows, gold crown sparrows, an American robin, a California towhee and some hummingbirds. Mackenzie reports that the Fish are starting to make observations about the markings on the birds, and even after the bird flies away they go over these colors and patterns over and over in their mind’s eye. If they are still curious they pull out the field guide and Mackenzie usually flips it to the general section that they will find the bird and lets them match the pictures to the image they have in their imagination. It’s important to notice the bird itself, not get caught up in its name!

The Goats prepped for today’s long ride to Dolores Park and along the Wiggle.

Meanwhile, the Ninja Cats took to the streets! They rode around the school block on the sidewalk and on the street for practice.
