Creature Comfort

NaNoWriMo has begun and I’m already behind in my word count. But sunshine beckoned and I made a tour of the lake after lunch. Not only is this a good time of year to find typewriters, but it’s shaping up to also be excellent for sighting birds and animals. Here are a few shots from the last three outings.

Swans on high

Trumpeter Swans on high

I don’t often see this, and at first I thought they were Canada Geese.

Barred Owl

Barred Owl

This owl was hiding in an aspen grove, close to where the Great Horned Owls were.

Pied Billed Grebe

This Grebe was here and gone in a day.

Deer

We came face to face with these two the other day; they simply stared at us.

Hairy Woodpecker

Hairy Woodpecker

This guy I discovered from his tell-tale tapping. It took me a minute to find him right in front of my nose.

Winter Wren

Winter Wren

The Wren hops about so quickly I was lucky to get this shot.

Northern Flicker

Northern Flicker

This female was on the ground, presumably poking her beak about for ants.

Now back to the typewriter, merely 800 words behind. I’m using my Olympia Splendid 33 at the moment.
