    I did not thought owls ate opossums. I once saw an opossum ( in real life) and it was huge. I did not knew it ate insects or snails. Moths are something I did not knew was in an owl´s diet. The scorpions and centipedes are venomous, but they eat it! I have learned a lot, and I am still finding an owl.

    if you try to find the sound find it on macaulay library however if the species is a bird you do not know describe it on merlin.

    I think I know how to help you. You could place a little more detail in the woodpecker such as dividing te body.  Also adding color to the woodpecker would really work. Believe me, that will solution your doubts.

    I have not seen an owl. My father has seen barn owls which have been featured in this course. Some time ago he saw one at 5 a. m. which was a barn owl( I was not there). Some weeks ago my family heard a hooting. I do not know the owl but I hope to see one in real life.

    You can also use a Pilot mechanical pencil, and  a watercolor set. Maybe some Winsor and Newton inks , the problem is they are not portable and if you accidentally drop them you will need some new clothes !

    What a wonderful course! When I go to the park I notice birds easily. Of course, others I need to practice. Many people do not notice birds but this course helped me and my family notice birds more. I do not have cats but however I will try to make all 7 actions. I do not have noticed much bird populations change.  But I think I have now noticed since 2014 the Andean condor population change. I hope it rises. Now I am interested in field sketching, also I know am submerged in ornithology, and even know two bird names. The Setophaga Ruticilla (American Redstart) and the (Athene Cunicularia) burrowing owl. I REALLY ENJOYED THIS COURSE.

    A few days ago I saw in the Cornell lab sapsucker woods cam mourning doves, blue jays, chickaadees, cardinals, woodpeckers, and a  bird that is common and comes in groups that I do not know. In my area pass black crested ant tanagers, scaly breasted wren, house wren, golden naped tanager, and blue backed tanager I didn´t knew that

    In the first activity, a birds that can be easily identified in the panama cams, are the chachalacas and the hummingbirds. In the second activity 3 birds that  have the same colors are gray, brown , and white, like the southern pochard  the ring- necked duck and the  lesser scaup In the fourth activity ( guess this ) I describe a pink bodied bird  with grey bill, larger  than a goose , with a flat beak

    Why does the summer tanager is in the Cardinalidae family and not in the Thraupidae family?

    There is one bird that always catches my eye, the burrowing owl. I like it because it builds its nest underground. Though I had never seen it I like it. Another two of my birds are te American redstart( Setophaga Ruticilla) and the kingfisher.
