This is a picture from 2006, the first year he went with us to feed the birds. He was 9 months old.
This year our hike was easier than usual because there was no snow. We still enjoyed hiking through the woods and feeding the birds. We actually took an extra long hike because it was such a warm day - around 30 degrees F.
Boogs had his own camera. I loved watching him decide what images he wanted to capture. He spent a long time by a partially frozen stream trying to get the light to shine "just right" on the ice so you could see the leaves trapped under the ice.
Boogs' patience paid off. This little bird hopped on his hand and stayed for several seconds before flying off.
They were playing a game where a person lost if their stick was the first one to lose contact with the ground by hitting a bump. Because of the leaves and pine needles you could not always see the roots and rocks sticking up in the path.
