Me I Thumper

Hello I am Thumper I am not so sure how to make a blog. The other day about 7 weeks And 6 days ago my babies were born. They are exhausting, I have been trying to ween them, gosh there they love milk. I remember the day that Lucy McLean and Julie and Molly took some of my babies and fed them with store bought bunny milk. They bought it because I did not have enough for them all to drink. They are huge now I can’t believe we are going to give them away soon. I will miss all there furry faces.

I wonder why they jump up in the air like lunatics. Why do they like to climb. Why do we all rock back and fourth when we sit down and are relaxed.

Hello this is Sandy 10/11/20

Hello my name is Sandy. This is my first blog ever. If it is not clear I am a mushroom. Yesterday I was visited by three girls. They looked at me then started drawing something on a piece of paper. Oh, I think they said something about Molly… and Analie… almost forgot Samma, or was it Emma, no it was Emma for sure. Then for some reason they took my sister, which I am still mad about. HEY IF YOU HAVE MY SISTER AND YOU ARE READING THIS, OH BOY, YOUR IN TROUBLE. Anyway they left soon after, I feel like a model. I heard that they were going to make presses out the mushrooms, what ever that means. I heard someone named Shane say that they didn’t work so maybe Shela will come back.

I wonder what the lines under my head are for. Why do I look like my oh so beautiful self. Do worms like me.

9/27 Owl Garden

These last few weeks, we have been working on two subjects. The two connect, one was owls (see my owl letter on my dashboard) and their adaptations. The other subject is organisms. We have been working on the hoop house to get the plants growing and healthy. 

We had to read 1 chapter and fill out a piece of paper. What I learned while reading is that we have a parasite in our eyebrows and eyelashes and other areas on our faces with hair. These parasites usually don’t do anything harmful. In really rare cases they make red itchy spots. I also learned what a niche is. It is like an ingredient. In order for an animal to live in one habitat, it needs a niche. Animals need food to survive. A squirrel need seeds and nuts to survive. These types of food are niches. Another niche is a shelter. Humans need shelter to survive. Without shelter we will die.

I really enjoy learning about organisms. There are so many different parts of them i’d like to learn more about.

Owl Letter

Dear Miss Cuttatree,

I have gotten some information about you. You know, not out of the ordinary kind of stuff. Here’s what I heard: You are a horrible person. Also I have written this letter to convince you not to cut down all of these trees for your resort. I mean, we have enough resorts. And you don’t want a bunch of owl pellets that your guests will step on, do you?. You and I both know that the first month of a business is the most important to make your customers happy. If that didn’t change your mind, maybe this will: My name is The long eared owl, but my friends call me Ears (by the way, don’t call me ears) and their nestlings call me Miss Long. You can call me Asio otus, for short, otus, if you will. Since you’re you and I’m me, don’t you dare make fun of my ears. They’re not really even ears, so don’t call me by saying, “oh miss big ears…” I won’t come. If you call me by yelling, “Hey yo, Tufts, get down here,” I might come down from terrorizing your guests. Oh, and my spots don’t they just make me look beautiful. Because I will be too busy making you miserable, I am going to be kind of lazy, so I am going to steal a hawk or a crows nest. Guess your bird watching group won’t be too happy–sorry. not sorry–although they will enjoy watching me (a 27 to 40 cm tall bird) swoop down and take all their gear. Oh, and when they think their luck is down, just wait for me and my babies to make noise at night. When the old people come back from the shuffleboard, they will sue you for giving them a heart attack from seeing a bird on their bed (although they could probably just lift me up as I weigh only 260g to 435 g). Girl, when you see me angry, you’ll wish that you hadn’t spent all that money on the uppity resort because my wingspan is 90-100 centimeters. Seriously, look at my face. 

 

By the way, I have been spying on you. But I won’t tell you how… oh, ok, fine, I’ll tell you. Well, I use it on all predators: raptors, eagles, hawks, you. I fly onto a tree, then I sort of spread out, and then I flatten my belly so that it looks like I am a tree limb. But then I usually get distracted, (because you’re so mean) and I go and get dinner. My dinner is usually voles, kangaroo rats, deer mice, snakes, or lizards. Wait, sorry, I got off track. Now, let’s get down to business. If you cut down these trees, all of the animals that live in them will die. If you are wondering what any of this does to you, well, here it is: If you cut down all of these trees then what you will have for dessert is rats and mice, things that the owls and other predators dependent on the trees eat. These  animals keep the rodent population down. That’s why you shouldn’t cut down forests for your resort!
