Ethereal

I spent at least 8 hours in two days birding on this boardwalk: Magee Marsh-Ottawa County, Ohio, USA. Today “The “Biggest Week in America Birding” happens here. This is called the Warbler Capital of the World!

Mother Robin

I took my neighbor yesterday to a 100th birthday celebration for this lady. My neighbor had been her supervisor! She received a letter from the House of Representatives of Ohio, and a letter from President Trump and the First Lady! A milestone, indeed!

Birders

Checking the waterfowl migration, produced 27 species for one of the birders in our group. I wasn’t pleased with the photos with my Canon 7D with a 70-300 mm lens with a 2x extender. I decided to post photos of birders, instead.

My sister and niece having a blast. The niece has only seen snow on TV!! And she used the technique she saw used on shows to make snowmen, and tried it out. The snow wasn’t really the best quality, but it kind of worked! It is also one of the first photos I have taken with my new camera, the Sony Alpha 6000

Let it Snow

My mother is now near us in Ohio, and hasn’t seen snow for 35 years. I hung a plaque on her door the other day, which said, “Let it Snow!” Very soon outside her window there were big flakes of snow!! The next day it dumped down some more snow! If anyone wants me to hang such a plaque on their door, just let me know! 🙂 Have a great weekend, one and all, with or without snow!

Is Spring Here?

I saw a flash of orange, and sure enough, there were two robins in my back yard on January 6!!

Grief


I lost a cousin last week to an unexpected death! This farmstead is where our Grandfather had lived.  Privileged to be part of the Christ S. Miller family. Pray for us as we walk through our loss this week. Condolences to the immediate family. Gerald Miller, you will be missed.
