I recently visited the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge, located about five miles away from my house. The refuge costs 3 dollars to get in, but boy was it worth it! I was working on a class project, so I didn’t have time to stay and look around, but I’m definitely hoping to go back sometime soon and explore! It was absolutely beautiful there.
For my project, I had to take video of some birds. I’ve never tried to video birds before, and I was amazed at just how hard it is! Eventually, I ended up parking on the side of the road and hiking off into the wilderness. There wasn’t a trail in sight, but that just made it more exciting.
My best video footage came when I found a tree full of little chickadees. I set up my tripod and found a nice spot of ground to curl up on. After I had been sitting there for awhile, the little birds seemed to forget I was watching them and carried on as if I wasn’t even there. I hung out with them for probably twenty minutes. It was a little cold, but well worth it!
I took some pictures while I was at the refuge too, so I could share them with you! The mushroom ones are my favorite!
