Weekend Waterview: The Crystal Coast

We visited the Crystal Coast of North Carolina for a long weekend with friends. Enjoying a little bird watching, fishing and scenery. We rented a house on Harkers Island for our stay.

Weekend Waterview: Osprey Nests on the Lake

We always look forward to boating in the summer to check on “our” osprey nests. Osprey return to their same nest each year in March here on the lake, after wintering in Central and South America. They can log more than 160,000 migration miles during their 15-to-20-year lifetime. They build their nests on manmade structures . . . channel markers, duck…

Snowy Day Table for the Birds

We had a second dusting of snow in a week, just enough to satisfy my craving for a little snow this winter! Snow is rare here and usually fleeting, so I get that giddy feeling you have to wake on a snow day and find out school is cancelled. I couldn’t resist the urge to…

A Picnic With The Birds

I’m picnicking with the birds with inspiration and fun provided by my Birds of a Feather Advent Calendar. Birds of a feather have flocked together and Lenox Winter Song plates and mugs are joining the fun, set on a tree slice charger and plaid throw for a tablecloth. A birdhouse is perched in the window box…
