tivity: What animal can you find?

This field guide includes many different plant and animal species seen
in Fairfax County, yet represents only a small percentage of the total
species that live in the county. Have you seen an animal near your
school or home that does not appear in this guide? Observing a species’
physical appearance, size, location and behavior are all important
in describing and identifying an organism. Take a few minutes to go
outside and find an animal that is not included in the field guide. Use
the area below to create your own entry in the field guide describing
the organism. Include a sketch of the organism and describe any unique
behaviors that the organism displays. Why do you think this animal was
not included in the guide?
