|The Marblehead, Ohio light house is decked out in holiday array.
Someone has gone to great pains to decorate the top of the Marblehead light. It is quite beautiful, and better yet, it required no effort what-so-ever on my part.
Marblehead isn't the only Lake Erie town with a light. Huron has a more modern-day light at the end of a long pier. This is an excellent hang-out for birders. Rafts of Red-breasted Mergansers were recently noted here. It it has been known for rarities, too. Everything from Sabine's Gull to Purple Sandpipers have made appearances at this jetty.
|Awesome sky light-
It can get windy out at the tip and sometimes I enjoy watching the clouds go by from my car. It is restorative. Relaxing. I don't have to chase every bird, sometimes I can take in the total picture and just know- things are good. My birding friend Jim McCormac was out in the weather on this particular day, and you can read his report from the point if you like.

Wherever you wander this holiday season, my wish is for your happiness. Enjoy nature, and may you enjoy time with your loved ones. Do me a favor and take them outside for a bit to see our magnificent natural world!
Happy Holidays- however you choose to enjoy them!
