Buffleheads

During migration times, we often see buffleheads on our lake. Often they are here in the spring even before all of the ice is gone from our lake. They  are quite shy when  they are on our lake and it’s very difficult to get close to them.

Buffleheads are North Americas’s smallest ducks. They are sea ducks and are usually seen diving for their food.  The males are black and white, with a large white patch on their glossy green and purple heads. The females are much more subdued with gray-brown feathers.

They are mostly monogamous, and often keep the same mate for several years. Apparently one has lived to at least 18 years.

I chose this verse because it is good to remember that if we know the Lord, our strength comes from Him. We do not need to be timid like the buffleheads.

 

 

The Difference a Week Makes

A week ago, our lake looked like this. We had just had an April snowstorm, and the ice was starting to melt at  the edge of the lake.

Now the lake looks like this. The ice has become very slushy, and is at one end of the lake.

My husband decided to take his old boat out and see what the ice was like.

You can see his venture into the ice in this picture.
