Snowy weekend at the Cabin

It's been so long since I've posted. Life gets busy and then time gets away faster than you know it.  This weekend we got to spend a long weekend at the cabin. We received about 3 inches of snow and Scout was in doggy heaven!  I'm looking forward to breaking out the snow shoes!

We have so many different birds nesting at the Log Cabin!  Tree Swallows, Orioles, Chickadees, Robins and Wrens.  Up above is a diligent Tree Swallow protecting his nest box.  Those Wrens can be sneaky sometimes and want to dominate as many nestboxes as they can.  How about you? Do you have any birds nesting in your yard?

Snowy Owl

I made one of my dreams come true this year - I found the Snowy Owl! For those of you that don't know, this is an irruptive year for the Snowy Owls and they usually don't come down so far south. But lack of food is pushing the juveniles down this year. I joined the Michigan Audubon's Birding Tour in Sault Ste. Marie. And would you know it, we ended up spotting two! (And by the way - I was the 1st one to see it.) Such a beautiful creature - hard to describe - but it was a beautiful moment!

How are all of you doing? I'm slowly making my blog rounds....
