Whether or not these fat bellied red breasts are a sign of springs seems to be a matter of debate.
But there is no debate they are the first to land at the dock this spring.
As we are half in and half out of the transformation, their bath tub, still not sure if it wants to be frozen or float.
The ice coverage on the great lakes has been the most extensive since 1979.
The damage is obvious. Ice dams blocked outlets in January on Ontario…
west winds brought high water and forcing ice. You would not have realized, with 3 times the volume of water as sister lake Erie, freezing almost completely over this winter, we would be left the twisted fate for 2014, from a 59% freeze over.
Once the transition starts, it is usually quick, but…
The nooks and crannies are the last to go.
In the right spot some can handle the liquid temp not far from the solid one, as the thrill of the first swim and retrieve wins out.
As the water becomes suitable for all to float…
we see the robin, as a sign of spring, sure as we witness the melt…
There is no debate we are…
Luvin life on the lake…usny with the signs of spring.
