Another Baby Bird

Remember that bird I found about a month ago?

Look! It’s another baby bird.

I think this one had a broken wing.


It couldn’t fly, so I took it to an Animal Rescue Center.


This is the bird in the box.

I don’t think he liked it in there because he pooped. Or maybe it’s just because he didn’t like the color orange.


The people at the Animal Rescue Center said this bird was a baby cuckoo bird.

Humongous Catfish


Check out this cool catfish. I found it in my yard. I’ve been trying to figure out what might have eaten it and brought it on land.

Muskrat? Raccoon? Snake? Bird? Turtle? Beaver? (If you don’t believe beavers eat fish, take a look at this video.)

What do you think?


This is me poking it with a stick.


It has tiny sharp little teeth too. Do you see that tongue?


Look! Half of it is eaten. It must have been humongous.


Stay tuned, like my guitar, for more of The Independent Kid’s adventures.


Found: Snake Back Bone



One day, I was walking and noticed a lot of noise. I went to check it out and there was a snake and a heron fighting outside. The heron flew away and left the snake on the ground without a head, just as I was approaching.

I left the snake because it was kind of spooky. When I left, guess what returned? The heron!

When I came back a few hours later, this is what I found. Sorry I didn’t have a camera to take a photo of the snake with its skin on, but this is even better.


Take a look at what was also left of the snake: blood and guts.



I didn’t know that herons ate snakes!

Found: Cute Little Bird

One day this past week, my dad was working outside. When I came out to look for him, he showed me a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest. I decided to pick it up and put it on the pinestraw to keep it safe from the mower. But, then, it hopped right back on to the grass.

What a crazy bird! Didn’t he know I put him there for a reason?!?

I really wanted to give the poor bird some food. But, it wouldn’t eat anything. It just kept opening its little beak.

Discovery of the Day: Biggest Fish I’ve Ever Seen

I thought I saw a plesiosaurus coming!

This is the Loch Ness Monster. It is supposed to be a plesiosaurus.

This is what I really saw.


Then, I realized, it was a humungous dead fish!


I poked and prodded it with a stick until it came on land.


Got it!


Look! It’s about 3 1/2 feet long! (It’s bigger than my foot!)



This fish is even bigger than the one I discovered before!

The Discovery of the Day: Fish Bones

Look! Vultures!


I wonder if they ate these!

WOW! That’s HUGE!


Look! These are so long!

This is the biggest fish skeleton I’ve ever found!



It’s me, The Independent Kid!

Today, I was gardening when I saw a lot of vultures. They were feasting on dead pike fish! They only left the bones. The largest one was 2 feet and 4 inches.

Cool or what?

Hope you enjoyed my true story of the day.
