I'm so excited to share our kids' music video HERE WE GO! - a story about baby sea turtles. "Here we go, go, go! Wish us luck, luck, luck! sing the newly-hatched sea turtles in this fun and educational sing-a-long video for kids by BIRDSONG and the ECO-WONDERS. Watch it and you will learn about the amazing life of baby sea turtles, the kinds of food they like to eat and how they find their way to the ocean in the middle of the night. This video features my song Here We Go and beautiful photos of baby and adult sea turtles. Our HERE WE GO! kids video also has the words to the song so that you and your family can read and sing along with me. Also, if you watch carefully, you will see me and Dr. Marcie singing with children in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize and in Orange County, California.
My song Here We Go is one of a growing collection of animal songs for kids by BIRDSONG and the ECO-WONDERS.

Dear Friends. I hope you had a chance to watch our animal song video Oxford the Octopus in my March 11 blogpost. Perhaps you enjoyed seeing Oxford change colors and disguises, as well as appear in the unlikeliest of places throughout the video. The video also contains some of the song lyrics so I hope that you were able to read or sing along to Oxford the Octopus. Today's blog post contains ALL the lyrics to Oxford the Octopus (from our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders). Our octopus song lyrics below will help you learn about octopus intelligence and behavior and read a few words that describe an octopus. OXFORD THE OCTOPUS - LYRICS He's Oxford the Octopus, proud to be an octopus. Friends say he's a smart fellow. He can change his colors when he's happy or mad To red, black or yellow. Chorus Oo-wee, ga-zoo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Octo-oo-wee, octo-goo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Well Octo means eight, and that's really great. He's an eight-armed invertebrate, oo-wee! He's Oxford the Octopus, proud to be an Octopus. So many things that he can do With his eight long arms and suction cups. He climbs, creeps, crawls and catches food. Chorus Oo-wee, ga-zoo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Octo-oo-wee, octo-goo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. He didn't go to college, but he has a lot of knowledge. For living in the sea, he's as clever as can be! He's Oxford the Octopus, proud to be an octopus And smarter than most people think. He can be any shape he wants, squeeze in between the rocks, Or disappear . . . in a cloud of ink. Chorus Oo-wee, ga-zoo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Octo-oo-wee, octo-goo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Oo-wee, ga-zoo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. Octo-oo-wee, octo-goo-wee, He's Oxford the Octopus. He's Oxford the Octopus. He's Oxford the Octopus.

Dear Friends, I hope you enjoy this interesting animal video How Wolves Change Rivers from Sustainable Man's YouTube channel. I found it fascinating to learn about the positive impact wolves have had on the food chain and ecosytems of Yellowstone National Park. Wolves were reintroduced to the Park in 1995 after being absent for 70 years and some scientists believe they began a natural process called a trophic cascade. I felt such admiration for wolves after watching this video that I sang my song, Leaders of the Pack, several times! As you watch this video, listen for the following words and discover the ways in which these things are connected to each other in Yellowstone National Park: Wolves Deer Vegetation Valleys Gorges Coyotes Rabbits Mice Hawks Fish Rivers Regenerate Forest Aspen Willow Cottonwood Songbirds Badgers Bald Eagles Ravens Fox Weasels Berries Trophic Cascade Beavers Dams Habitats Otters Muscrats Ducks Fish Reptiles Amphibians Bears Migratory Birds After watching this video, I recommend you listen to my kids song about wolves, Leaders of the Pack. Sing along with me as you learn even more about wolves.You can also see great wolf photos in my kids song video from a previous blog post. There you will also find the lyrics to Leaders of the Pack. I've learned alot about wolves since writing leaders of the pack in 2009, and I look forward to learning more.

Dear Friends, I hope you enjoy our new animal song video Oxford the Octopus. As you may know, the octopus can be a very clever animal, and clever is what Oxford is! Have fun watching him change colors and disguises, as well as appear in the unlikeliest of places throughout this song video. This video also contains most of the song lyrics so that you can read or sing along to Oxford the Octopus. As I wrote in my previous blog post, the octopus is widely regarded as the world's smartest invertebrate. In fact, the intelligence of the octopus and its ability to change color and shape inspired the verses in Oxford the Octopus (from our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders). The Giant Pacific Octopus is the specific species after which I modeled my character OXFORD THE OCTOPUS. Until I did my research on the Giant Pacific Octopus, I did not know that octopuses can have emotions and often change colors according to what they are feeling. Pretty smart, indeed! (Giant Pacific Octopus photo source and credit found on bing.com.) This kids music video will help you learn more about octopus intelligence and behavior. You can also learn about how baby octopuses are hatched in a previous blog post video. Want to know how you can help to keep the ocean clean for the octopuses and other sea animals? OXFORD THE OCTOPUS has a few suggestions on our website! Enjoy!

Dear Friends, I hope you enjoy this animal song video from the Bat Conservation International YouTube channel. It's called Echolocation-Awesome Music Video. I found it while I was researching bats for a song I am writing about them. I have always been fascinated by bats and find them to be interesting animals for many reasons. These reasons include the fact that about 70% of bats eat insects and use echolocation to find their way and their prey in the night. You can learn more about echolocation and how bats use it on Animal Planet's Animal Facts about echolocation. There are other animals, like the bat, that use echolocation. Do you know what animals these are? One of them is featured in my fun animal song YouTube video Clickety-Clack. Clickety Clack can also be found on our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. I hope these videos inspire you to learn more about echolocation and the amazing animals that use it. Enjoy! you can help to keep the ocean clean for the octopuses and other sea animals? OXFORD THE OCTOPUS has a few suggestions on our website! Enjoy!
