Max, me, and a few birds

We are up in Toledo visiting Max. Well, okay, I’m also visiting his mother/my daughter and son-in-law, and my own parents, and I saw my son and another daughter in Dayton on our way up here, and Gail is seeing some of her family, but this trip (and this run-on sentence) is really all about Max!

Isn’t he CUTE!! :-)

And, of course, we made a little time to look for birds. Here are a few of our pix.

Your basic White-throated Sparrow:

A couple of friendly White-breasted Nuthatches who came down off the tree to walk around our feet. I thought one might actually crawl up my leg!

A beautiful Tufted Titmouse:

A manic, stealthy Blue-gray Gnatcatcher:

And a little band of Blue Jays. The picture is a bit blurry, but I like the fanned out tail in flight.

Max has now gone out backyard birding with me twice. Here is a panorama of his backyard.

And here he is in his birding stroller. Well, that’s what I call it, anyway. Great times! :-)

 

 

Little Max Changes Everything!

Suddenly everything is different, in a most wonderful way! This tiny little package turned me into a grandfather, and my children into parents, aunts or uncle. It changed my parents into great-grandparents. This package of joy has been named Maxwell Thomas Mahon, or Max. He brings joy, hope and dreams. We welcome him with open arms into our loving family! :-)
