This afternoon, my sisters and I went to the Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary in Manistee. I'm staying in the area in my sisters' cottage near Lake Michigan, and when I found out the Audubon Society had a wildlife sanctuary here, I was really happy.
And I still am. It's beautiful there.
It was a lovely day for a walk - temperatures in the seventies, sunny, a slight breeze... just about perfect.

I don't even think I'd heard of them till a couple of years ago. I just didn't used to pay a bit of attention to birds.
|The bird sanctuary goes all the way down to the water.|
|I'd love to see this one at some point. No ducks to be seen today.|

Over the river and through the woods...
Here is an interesting plant:
Look at the seeds/berries/whatever they are in the middle. Anyone know what this is? Maybe some kind of trillium? I really know nothing whatsoever about plants.
I'm sure some critter is having a wonderful time with this tree. Any ideas here?
|I love chickadees.|
|What kind of woodpecker is this?|
I'm so grateful for this beauty and for the chance to share it with my sisters. Family sisters, in this case. God is so good.
