Really every day gives us one, to use as we will, and to think of as we choose to think.
However, today marks the official one.
This morning at 1:30 AM I was greeted by this little horse on the dining room table when I came downstairs. Last crochet project for Becky for 2015, and boy has she come a long way since she started this craft. Isn't he a cutie?
First bird for 2016 was a Northern Flicker, which is at least a little more glamorous than last year's starling.
We managed as a family to tally 84 species on the farm this year, four over the goal I set myself. No goal yet for this year, but already several species, including American Robins, are listed, and I have only gone outside to walk the pups.
Guess my most exciting bird for last year was actually a pair, Upland Sandpipers, and by all evidence they nested here, which is a nice bonus.
Anyhow, enjoy your day, and Happy New Year from Northview. I'm going to get out and click up some birds.
