Mergansers are Back



No, that’s not a Merganser – but a cutie little shore bird. Last year we had 2-3, this year we have a flock of 10-20. This morning about 7 were walking around.



I like their tracks. All along the front of the house we have a path of tiny dots. Too cute!

I walked down because I saw 4-5 Mergansers swim over to the spot next door.  I am getting a lot better at self control with physical excitement because I came around the corner of the boat house and saw this scene, and didn’t scare them away.

  1. I loved the photo with the one bird and her brood walking across the ‘bridge’. The more I homeschool the more I appreciate so many things and nature is one of them. So is this on your property or where you all visiting a lake?

      We were pretty lucky, God Blessed, to find a rental on the Lake. My husband was transferred to Lincoln City, a small 7 mile long community , 3.5 miles of it is along a lake to the east, the town is 1 mile wide, and the ocean is along the west. We’re on the east side of the lake. We wake up every day in a dream. Trying to enjoy every moment! The first year we moved here I had two blogger blogs called Lake Schooling and Beach Schooling to hold our 400 pictures a day – ha! Hubby said – sometimes y’all actually even do “some schooling”, so a year into it, and because of TOS, I mearged the blogs into one, and now we have Lake Schooling, Beach Schooling and Some Schooling all in one spot. 😉
