The Angry Bird Geocache Series

A couple of weeks ago Louie and I did a 10 cache series called "The Angry Bird."  These were a group of very clever caches all placed along The Gilman Nature Trail.  We liked this because we were able to park at one end and then walk the trail, grabbing the geocaches along the way.  We had the trail practically to ourselves...



I'm going to show you some of the caches.  Every cache was hidden in a bird house.  Each one had some sort of a twist and you had to figure out the secret to open each cache container to get to the log sheet.  They were all really clever and the cache owner put a lot of time and effort into the whole series.

The first one was Bridge Over Troubled Waters.    I have to admit I was stumped on the very first one, but fortunately Louie had an "ah ha" moment and we soon had the cache in hand.  I immediately knew we were in for some more good caches and we were not disappointed!




Nuts About You had a clever twist...



The Right Choice  required us to do something I've never seen before and I was glad I made the right choice....



Quarter to Three  required a coin and we made a mad dash into our pockets looking for a quarter.  Good thing Louie had one....



Sweet Sixteen  was another unusual cache, one I've never seen before, and again, Louie figured it out....

Turning Japanese     wasn't difficult to figure out.  Check out the chop sticks!!  Sushi anyone?



Come to Me  was cute and we figured it out pretty quickly....


The final cache was Amazing Grace .  It gave us a little trouble but I eventually figured it out....




The only cache we didn't get was The Key.  I hate not figuring out a cache and we tried everything we could think of trying.  Of course, when we got home and I looked at all the pictures of the cache, I think I might have figured it out.  We'll just have to go back sometime and see if I'm right.  I'll just show you 2 of the photos because I don't want to give too much away....



In all, it was a great series and we did it, plus 2 additional caches, in less than 3 hours.  Check them out if you're in the Aurora, Illinois area.  I'd like to thank cache owner and creator Poker70 for this excellent series.  It's geocachers like this who make the game fun for everyone.

  1. I think your geocaching sounds like so much fun! It isn't something I am likely to do alone, but I love the idea of it being a family thing. :)

    1. It's a great family activity. I'll stop and grab one by myself if I'm out and about, but I prefer to go with other people.

    1. I felt stupid on the first one once Louie figured it out - I should have known how to do that one.
