New Arrival

I thought I'd seen it all when the Eagle bounced into the point tree, the Sandhill Cranes buzzed over the roof, and the Loons started patrolling off the sea wall.  Today, we have a new arrival, a Pheasant!  I'd only seen these birds from the car while driving on the highway in California.  I had no idea just how big they are--pretty close to chicken-sized.  Here's a picture of the fellow on our West shore.  He's not a bit shy.  He just watched me as I shooed the ever present Geese off the property.

The Last Snow Storm?

We can dream!  It's fun to be surrounded  by white.  But we're ready for Spring now. This is the view through the living room window.

Open Water

Not a boat on the lake as yet.  Won't be long.  Here is a sunrise on our first open water that has a chance of staying open.  We've had a number of false alarms this winter.

So How's Fishing?

I get asked that a lot--check it out!
Seriously--this took place on the Wabash River--not on Lake Manitou.
Couldn't resist it, though.
