Happy New Year friends! 2012 was a huge year for my family with special birthdays (my 60th and son's 18th), our 25th anniversary, Charley's HS graduation and the birth of our first grandchild, Nathaniel. Now I wonder what 2013 will bring us? My one hope is for good health for us all to enjoy what comes our way.
I also hope to make more of this blog and use it as I originally intended to share not just my crafting but all my interests. Family, health, birding and of course crafting.
To start out Jan 1 I am posting a photo I took just two days ago of this lovely female Northern Harrier. I see them in the air all the time but rarely perched or on the ground where I can digi-scope them. I had been watching her cruising a marsh area when she landed to investigate another raptors "left-overs". She plucked a bit at it but wasn't interested and took off again with another female to buzz the shore birds. They were having a lot of fun stirring up trouble in the marsh.
