A Peaceful Confrontation and Not

swans-on-the-iceDear Friends, these two trumpeter Swans have returned to the Northland, and with lots of talking there are some confrontations.  Sometimes they are peaceful and just showing off their beautiful white feathers, other times there is chasing and pulling on feathers as shown in the bottom image, enjoy, til Tomorrow MJ

A Winter Guest

suet-hog

Dear Friends, this boy(Pileated Woodpecker) was shopping for groceries in our 3 inches of new snow.   Jim had just put out a new suet block and he zeroed in on it.  The red dash under his chin marks him as a male, on females that spot is black.  Hope they will nest here in our woods, may have to sit out in the woods to see where they are working, til Tomorrow MJ
