Whitewater Township, Ohio, United States
My wife Julie and I purchased our property in June 2007. Our home sits on seven acres of hillside overlooking the Whitewater River valley in western Hamilton County, Ohio roughly 20 miles west of Cincinnati. The property is well wooded and boasts a pond of about 1/5th acre. Our professional careers dictate we live in Hamilton County, which makes a country setting a bit difficult to find in a county of almost 1 million people. We share the property with our son Casey (3 1/2), and a herd of domesticated animals including 2 dogs, 3 cats, 3 parrots, and 4 Blue Swedish ducks, 10 Buff Orpington chickens, not to mention my oldest hobby aquarium fish.

Count the Birds!!!!!

This is just something else I'm into (can't have too many hobbies), but coming up in February is the Great Backyard Bird Count. It's easy to participate, doesn't take much time, and is a worthwhile endeavor.
Essentially for a 4 day period (February 13-16, 2009) they ask folks to go outside, or just sit at a window and count the birds you see. Go to the website linked above and get started. You DO NOT NEED TO BE A BIRD EXPERT TO PARTICIPATE.
