Superior Views-A Northern Shrike

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Frozen ice sheets cover the lake, and wind-blown snow covers the landscape.  The pileated woodpeckers, juvenile eagles and chickadees and long daylight bring joy.  Snow falls,  melting, and icy walking are almost an everyday cycle068

Attacking a chickadee a Northern  Shrike is stunned as he bangs into a window.  Our first great view of a shrike!064

Real spring is still weeks away, but enjoy a March sunset over the lake071
