Spring brings new life

About this time every year, we get to watch our Tree Swallows fight and flurry to get the best house and begin their nesting.

And it has begun!  We have about 11 houses and it seems they all know to come back to play here at Cozy Cove Cabins.

How much fun it is to watch them making nests, fighting over the house, and then playing, I assume.

This one, I think they are having a discussion about who has to watch the nest and who gets to play.

And although they have not arrived yet, soon my finches will arrive too.   Can’t wait.

This is the season to find birds in our region.  I hear many calls and hoots just around here but I cannot see them.  And the only sound I recognize is the chickadees.

We do have a few ducks already but I have not heard the loons yet.  Of course, the lake is still ice but it won’t be long now.
