I was so excited to have found my beloved Loon pair this morning, that I posted this photo on all 3 of my blogs! I kayaked all over Big Bradford lake to find these two - listening carefully for their haunting call across the water. And to make things even better, I heard a Loon on my own lake (Little Bradford Lake) this morning. So tomorrow I will load up the kayak and go looking for him. It goes without saying, the Common Loon is my favorite bird!

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”
This is a Barred-Owl that I was able to meet in person at the Kirtland Warbler Festival recently. As he was injured and cannot be released back into the wild, he is used for education by a wildlife rehabilitation organization.
Everyone have a safe Memorial weekend! Remember those who sacrificed who us and continue to do so!

This is a female Red-winged blackbird. She is vastly different from the striking male with his black feathers and red bars on his wings. But still, as I watched the plain female, I decided she had her own quiet beauty.
