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 mistakenly discovered my new baby as I was searching through my binoculars for eagles one day from the cabin deck. A furry little head caught my eye.…

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…
