Birding Like a Boss
One of my most indelible childhood memories was when grandma wrapped up ham salad sandwiches and a thermos full of milk in our picnic basket, and we took off on a sunny fall day to DeSoto Bend to watch vast flocks of birds as they migrated. The Audobon Society  has an extensive list of great areas to go birding near Omaha. It’s a great way to spend time together in nature.
