On the eighth Day of Christmas, Mary gave to me:
8×40 Minolta Activa binoculars!
A most generous gift, which I received from a Bird Count friend after she saw me sharing a pair with my Dad. A few days later she gave me a very nice pair of binoculars which I now use all the time, and love.
To have a pair of binos that have such clear lenses and great light-gathering power is wonderful. And my Dad is slightly jealous!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

That’s wonderful, Ethan! No doubt they were a big help to have along on the bird count. It was a very cold day; how did the excursion go?
Ethan, you are doing a wonderful job with the 12 Days of Birding. I am enjoying your creativity and the history of your developing interest in the Birding World. We don’t have very many birds at the moment as it is VERY cold and icy. I will have to go out tomorrow and break the ice away from the feeder troughs as I am sure a little chickadee beak would not be able to poke a hole in it.
My Opa has given me another pair of binoculars, after the other ones he gave me broke. It makes a big difference with good binoculars.
That is SO true.
