Episode 3 of Cheese & Burger

We're getting concerned.  We haven't seen Cheese and Burger in a couple of days.  The sparrows are trying to get into the nest box, but so far, they don't fit into the openings.  We hope they haven't abandoned the box and return. These little birds, with their black cap and bib and white sides to the face, fascinate us to no end.  The sexes look alike exc[...]

Episode 2 of Cheese & Burger Move In

Cheese & Burger continue to keep us entertained.  Cheese (the male) sits on the perch and sings his "hey baby" song.  I've seen two birds, but lately just Cheese.  The naughty sparrows keep trying to invade the home, but fortunately, they're too big to get inside.  When I was positive the birds were out and about, I opened the back of the house to see wh[...]

Cheese and Burger Move In

Day 1 - Today a pair of chickadees (Cheese and Burger) moved into the purple birdhouse.  It's a two story building, and I think they've decided to occupy both floors.  They didn't need a moving van, but I did see them bring in some furniture - no TV so at least I know they won't be tapping into my cable.  LOL  We were anxiously awaiting their move in as they[...]

Chasing the Light

Butterfly season is coming up.  Meijer Gardens has its butterflies are blooming exhibition and pretty soon the little winged beauties will be visiting our gardens.  If you can't get to the Meijer exhibit and can't wait for the warmer weather to bring out the butterflies, you can always visit the Detroit Zoo's terrific butterfly house.  I thought I'd share th[...]

Lighthouses in West Michigan

This past weekend we decided to go to West Michigan to shoot the lighthouses while they were covered in ice.  Walking to some of the lighthouses was treacherous to say the least.  Saturday wasn't too bad as it was in the high teens/low 20s temperature-wise.  On Saturday, we managed to visit the lighthouses at St. Joseph and South Haven.  I can't remember eve[...]
