Icy Day at Home

I have found a new use for iNaturalist that the developers may not have foreseen- entertaining kids at home during an ice day.

While I was entering some observations yesterday, I decided to show my son a picture of a very cute hispid cotton rat that someone had taken. He looked at it, eyes wide, and exclaimed "oh, so cute! It looks like a hamster!" (he loves hamsters).

Then we looked at more pictures- cottontails, squirrels, skunks, a kingfisher, a great egret, a great blue heron. A cardinal. A bluebird. Ducks. Quite a few things neither of us knew.

It wasn't as good as actually going outside. But it was a great substitute for a walk in the woods on a very cold icy day.
