My son, Dustin looking through the scope at these Dunlins at Metzger Marsh in North Central Ohio! There were over 150 in this group (not all in photograph due to cropping).

The beginning of our hike on a local “Rails to Trails” trail! A brisk cool morning, but we had “Mission Accomplished!” We were hoping to sight a Red-Shouldered Hawk that had been on this section of the trail, and succeeded!

My mother always said that as soon as we saw a bumblebee, we could go barefooted. I saw a bumblebee yesterday, as well as this young boy, barefooted!

My wife, Alice, and our son, Dustin enjoying an early morning walk during the late Winter snowfall.

We meet a neighbor, and Alice joins her to catch up with the latest news. This is a close-up, and the next photo they qualify for a “Where’s Waldo” photo!

Another friendly neighbor is out making sure the squirrels have some food handy with this late snowfall. Do “April Showers Bring May Flowers” even if they are snow showers! It’s now April, so Spring should be right around the corner.

Our carving club met at a local shop on Saturday. Here Dave is demonstrating how to simulate on the young man’s carving of a deer. Also a photo of my tools and cup of coffee!
