Today was a real treat. Right here at home in Rockville, Maryland, we were able to find a Northern Saw-whet Owl. This cute little owl is only eight inches tall and was roosting in a Juniper Tree about nine feet off the ground. This was a life bird for me.

We are in Utah for Amy and Nathan's Open House. I was able to do some birding with daddy. On Thursday, in Salem, we saw two Red-breasted Mergansers--a life bird for me. We also were able to watch a large flock of Bohemian Waxwings in Provo.
I spent a few quick hours in Central Park in New York. It was a cold morning, but the highlight was finding a Screech Owl sitting in a cavity in a tree. Can you believe that I forgot my camera!
St. Thomas in November.
Our big trip to Africa. We spent two weeks in South Africa, mostly seeing wildlife, but we did find a little time to go birding.
My first big trip to Costa Rica. We had three great days of birding and saw 200 species of birds.

Our family headed out to Utah today for Amy and Nathan's Open House. Robert was able to sneak in a few hours of birding with grandpa----and saw one new life bird, a Red-breasted Merganser. Wow!!!

Daniel has been working hard. We were able to get him to squeeze in some time to power wash the swing set in our back yard. It is freezing outside, but he was determined to get the job done.

We have had an exciting few days. Last Saturday we had a fun trip to the zoo. Daniel has been very busy working. In this picture he is power washing the swing set in our back yard.

Today we headed out to Utah for Amy and Nathan's Utah Open House. Robert was able to catch a few hours of birding with his dad.
