It’s Saturday at The Grass Stain Guru and that can mean only one thing — time to play Mystery Critter! Let’s have a little fun and play a guessing game, designed to help us all learn a bit more about the wildlife we are lucky enough to share the planet with.
So, hope you have your thinking caps on, my beloved readers! Y’all are getting so good at this. I keep having to come up with more clever clues! OK, let’s play. And remember — no cheating!
- I (or a close cousin) am found throughout North America;
- I am nocturnal;
- I’ve been known to try and blend-in;
- I make my home in trees and shrubs; and
- I have a lot to say!
What am I? Make your guess, and then go here for the answer and more interesting facts. Did you get it right?! If not, no worries — you’ll have another chance next week!
You will probably hear today’s Mystery Critter rather than see it! But fear not — they are out there, and such a delight to see. Regardless of the wildlife in your area, rest assured there is something to wow and delight the kid in all of us. Bright colors, amusing songs and sounds, and flights of fancy are just waiting for you, so get outside and see what nature has in store today.
Don’t forget to let folks know about what you see! Join the Wildobs community and report your wildlife observations. It’s a great way to keep track of your wild adventures and share info with others.
See ya outside! – The Grass Stain Guru
