A Break From Chores

These days we are so busy we don't have much time for really taking a look around. Our summer season is so short in this north country so we must hurry around like busy bees trying to get ready for the coming winter. However, even on the busiest days I am conscious of how wonderfully blessed I am to live in a place with so much to offer and such an abundance of wildlife. While we haven't seen any of the bigger creatures lately (other than moose tracks through the garden) we sure do have a lot of birds this year. I do mean a LOT! They are also being very prolific a procreating as well and I do love seeing babies.

Our lovely lady in the outhouse has a second batch hatched already!

We finally decided to take a break the other day and take a ride to see what we could find. I was pleasantly surprised to see several batches of baby ducklings. It seems too late in the year for babies but there is no mistaking it as I have the proof in pictures!

There were about 4 batches of these little ducks, all more or less the same age.

Momma and Pappa for these lucky little ducklings

Most of the older spring babies are already almost full grown. Don't know what happened to this poor pond but it is now completely covered in algae.

I really felt sorry for the poor little ones trying to swim through it!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. See you on the other side!
