A love of Loons

If you know me, then you already know that my twitter handle is Loonchick1205, my cabin is decorated with Loon decoys and I will drop whatever I am doing once I hear the Loon's haunting call across the lake.  My husband says "The True North begins when the Loon greets you." I agree.I love them for many reasons. Their complex…See More

Snowy Owl Invasion

Due to either the scarcity of lemmings and/or a successful breeding season in the arctic, the Northeast has seen an influx of Snowy Owls.  I was excited to locate one recently at a local airport. What impressed me was how respectful the other bird watchers were too by keeping their distance.  Snowy Owls are especially sensitive to human disturbance. It is a magnificent owl to witness - at a distance of course.…See More

Birding the Soo

Posted on March 1, 2012 at 7:55pm 4 Comments

I was part of a Michigan Audubon birding trip recently to Sault Ste. Marie.  I had one thing on my mind - please god, let me see the Snowy Owl.  At the beginning of our trip, our guide went around the circle asking everyone what they wanted to see (Northern Shrike, Sharp-tailed Grouse, etc.) I realized that they had already seen the Snowy Owl. Immediately I was filled with envy and despair.  What was wrong with me? I had made my husband drive mercilessly around northern Michigan to…

My new little friend

One thing I've noticed at the cabin, I can't stop claiming ownership of everything.  That is MY pine tree, that is MY Downy Woodpecker and this is MY clean air.  So I guess it's no surprise as I discovered a little baby red squirrel that I became a "proud mama" who had to share photos with all her friends of MY baby.

I



One of the things I look forward to on our winter weekends to our cabin, is the bird watching opportunities this season brings. The feeders get a little busier and I look forward to some of my favorite friends returning such as the redpolls and pine siskins. Recently I was thrilled to get a photo of the pileated woodpecker (pictured above.) I cannot tell you how many times I have reached for my camera and this bird goes screeching off, I swear…
