Cowbird Morning

It was 45 degrees and mostly sunny at 8:30 A.M. on Good Harbor Hill in Cook County, Minnesota, North America.
The cowbirds dominated the neighborhood. Three brown-headed males and one gray female went from tree to tree to feeder. They were up to something. Next thing she will be laying eggs in someone elses nest. They are beautiful though, and it is Mother’s Day after all.

It is 35 degrees and there is a dusting of snow on the ground. We have been fooled by the earliest spring in over a century.

I have counted nine species of birds in ten minutes from the north porch. It reminds me of Kampala, Uganda…

June weather in Grand Marais

50 degrees and a few clouds on Good Harbor Hill at 7:00 a.m. The steelhead have been running in the Lake Superior rivers since March when the snow was gone. It is a remarkable year to say the least.
