We took a little day trip…the sun was shining…lovely!
We took along our coffee and muffins (and lunch)…and stopped at a lakeshore camp.
Sometime in the 1930’s someone took on the job of adding trim made of small rocks, to this water tower.
A closer view…right at the peak, perfectly centered, a Phoebe has built her nice round nest…what a designer! (and WE talk about “nesting!)
Wrens have been known to fill very large cavities with nesting material…
Further North, along Lake Winnipeg, we saw more work of birds…this is near the lower part of a tree trunk…a Pileated woodpecker has chipped out a 5-6 long oval area, hunting for grubs,,,it must have a powerful beak..those chips are not tiny!
More evidence of Sapsuckers or woodpeckers drilling for food..
We also saw several bald eagles, including a distant view of an eagle’s nest.
…….all reminding me again how wonderful our world is….
