Tired of Winter

ringbills pair summer

Friends, I am very tired of winter, so decided that my blog will reflect the colors of summer for this day’s blog.  The green lifts my spirits and the ring billed ducks are looking for a nesting site on Fish Lake.  Crex Meadows is having a Big Year for Birding that had a formal kick off last night. Today we can start tabulating all the birds we see within the Glacial Lakes Grantsburg wildlife areas.  The person who records the most species of birds in this 11 month period is the winner.  I won’t win but it will be fun to try.  til Tomorrow MJ
