You gotta have the right equipment

Photo by BarrytheBirder
 My wife and I gave new binoculars to the families of our two daughters as Christmas gifts.   Pictured above are our two granddaughters checking out the backyard birds on New Year's Day.     I believe you have to start them young at birdwatching.   We started the granddaughters and the grandsons when they were 3 1/2 years old.   
Please comment if you wish and very best wishes for a wonderful 2012.

I agree. A family friend gave me his old Peterson's Field Guide (green canvas cover...the really old one) when I was six. Nice web log!
