More Log Cabin Friends

As you've probably figured out, every bird or animal I see up at our log cabin immediately becomes my friend! (With the exception of mosquitoes and spiders!) I've really become attached to this Loon pair and kept thinking of how I could help the Loons of Michigan since their population is decreasing. (For some of you who may read my bird blog - sorry for the repeat!) Anyways, long story short - I am now a Loon Ranger with Michigan Loonwatch and will now be watching over and tracking the progress of the Loon pair on a neighboring lake. I have the mama Loon and her 2 babies pictured below.

My husband and I take a trip up to Cabin #1 at www.bearcreeklogcabins.com every year. I'm a cabin addict!

Layla said...

Just let me know if you'd like a painting of your little mischievious furry friend! :-)

After you visited my blog and said such nice things I had to come over and check out your blog. I was excited to see the log home, and enjoyed checking out your photos. It looks like you have a very nice home indeed! I hope you enjoy it for many years to come.

Take care,

Your cabin looks gorgeous. We have loons on our lake - I love falling asleep (or waking up) to the sound of them calling to one another.
(thanks for visiting my blog)

Shellmo said...

Jess - thank you - think this will be the funnest volunteer job!

Reliv - you're very kind!

Layla - I checked out that bearcreek website - looks like a really neat place!

Marcel - thank you for stopping by! I really enjoyed your blog!

Beth - There is nothing better than leaving your bedroom window open and hearing the Loons call across the lake at 5:30 a.m. Just magical!

Chipmunks will eat out of your hand. They will also walk right over your bare feet to get to the food. LOL.

Love your blog posts.
