Our lake is a flutter with pelicans. It has been two years since the ice on our lake melted early enough for them to come here for a "bed and breakfast" before they continue their migration up north. Yesterday there were a few straglers, this morning there were over one hundred of them. They must have arrived at night. They stay in an inlet on the north end of the lake. During the day they fly around to different lakes on the chain and then return to their inlet at night. What a joy!
Oops ... a stranger in their midst ... the eagles have been showing up as well :)

This is a very large branch on a very large old Oak tree that I see out my window every day. I will chronicle it through the year as Monica suggested, though I doubt that the owl will be there again :)
A toast to new beginnings!

Hootin' Annie found an A for Annie in a natural state and challenged the rest of us to find our initial somewhere, anywhere in a natural state ... well here's my effort, though none of them are as clear as Annie's. So it is A for Andrea ...
This one you may need some help with ...
now can you see it?
Not exactly natural, but an A-frame is a given ...
So there you have it. If you have seen your initial somewhere, join Hootin' Annie's challenge ... it is open until March 31st.

It is quite a shock for these poor birds ... one day it is in the 50's and the next it is in the 20's. You can just see the grumpy looks as they try to cope with the cold wind off of the lake.
Even the Sea Gulls feel the need to huddle until the sun warms things up a bit.
Happy WBW everyone ...
