I have just come back from my cabin at Thompson Lake. It was quiet and peaceful. It was just me and the birds. The tree swallows have chosen one of my bird houses for their home. Thanks to that Real Estate Bird! They are so interesting to watch as they poke their heads into the different houses, call each other, chatter about it and then choose the one. The yellow finches are enjoying the feeders. They all know when I have my camera aimed at them and think I am going to shoot them. The peacefulness, the songs of the birds and the mist from the rain made the weekend awesome!
