Inchworm, I Love You!

Those of you of a certain age will certainly remember this Inchworm toy and song. On our Minnesota Master Naturalist field trip last Saturday, I had the chance to spend a few minutes of quality time with an inchworm. Needless to say, the inchworm song was running through my head during our encounter. Enjoy the movie!

To help you with your bird song ID, here's the list of what birds were singing during the video:

Eastern Wood Pewee

Great Crested Flycatcher

House Wren

Field Sparrow


American Goldfinch

Indigo Bunting

(I didn't list them in order of appearance so you will have a bit of a challenge!)

Sad to report I feed them to my tropical fish. :(
Wishing I could ID birds by the songs like JH and the other pros do. Another fifty years practice though and I'll have it down pat.

Thanks Dawn.

Thanks Stephen. I know what you mean about that inchworm song! I still remember it from the original commercial in the 70's!

I bet the birds would like eating those inchworms too Ray!

Gosh, I haven't seen an inch worm in years and years. That was fun. Thanks. Oh...I recognized the rooster, that's what level birder I am! (VBG)
