For a weekend, It’s calm and quiet on the lake as I eat my lunch on my boat house deck. 8 Common Loons have been ranged out around in front of me all the way over to the west shore. 2 more to the north, probably more. I got to see one pattering on the water to take off and fly north -something you don’t see every day!
A pair each of Red- breasted & Common Mergansers, with a Kingfisher zipping back & forth. A few Ring-billed gulls waiting to see if they can steal a goodie from the divers. Several Robins, Grackles & Red-winged Blackbirds on shore, too. Grackles exploring the docks on top & underneath. Meanwhile, up at the house, I have a whole herd of cowbirds!
