Bird Haven

eyes opened to a snow cloaked realm


the wee island touched my heart

sometimes i think of it as Charlie's island
because he made the ponds and tiny island

also i call it: 
Bird Haven


because the tiny folk are safe there
(plus Charlie and Annie love the birds, so it seems perfect)


reflections
light
frosty water

a lovely sight


also the bridge that A&C made

all things i enjoy
and 
love

thank you A&C!

now the sun sinks into the horizon
pulling a night cloak over us


much of the snow has melted away

it is said in Montana:
if you don't like the weather
simply wait 20 minutes

  6. This seems to be the picture of winter that it goes off from us.

  7. That light powdering of snow makes everything look so dainty! Just look at that little puffed-up bird. Could it be a chickadee? Love the bridge, though you would need to keep your balance!

    1. hello Sandra,

      yes, it is a chickadee, they stay with us all winter, all year. it is a Chestnut-backed chickadee, we have three types or maybe four here.
      the bridge is wide enough and strong enough, but it does wobble a little bit. I think we got two inches of snow, such a surprise as it has mostly been raining lately.

      sweet day or evening to you.

  8. Exquisite reflection images!
    Your little island has an ethereal quality - like a mini Avalon - an elfin sanctuary?
    It also reminds me of tiny tree covered islands in Scottish lochs,a protected place for wildlife.

    Have a lovely week Tammie,
    Ruby

  10. They say that same thing about the weather where I live too. :-) Beautiful photos, as always.

  11. That magical dusting transforms your landscape to winter for a short while. To live near water is so restful. The reflections are lovely. We've had several days of snow - about 2' so far. We're back to enjoying winter here in the mountains of CO. Our neighbor is moving to MT for next winter to teach skiing at Big Sky.

    1. Yes, for a short while Barb. Some snow remains a day later, but most has turned to water. 2 Feet is a lot of snow! How lovely that you can still slide around in it. I really did not get to enjoy that enough this winter. Since i don't down hill, I have nevr been to Big Sky, I hear that it is nice.

  12. They say that about Michigan, too! But I'm not sure I've seen anything quite so magical here -- that glistening snow and the water is breathtaking!

  13. Beautiful pictures and such a lovely place. I am amazed that you still have snow. We haven't had any here in southern Scotland this year! Sadly my father died last month and we have inherited his house. It very much reminds me of your place. It is lovely, but we won't be able to move there for at least two years, until my daughter has finished at school (high school?). However, I really love the place and there is so much that can be done to attract wildlife. It will be a lovely place to live.

    1. hi Nick,
      I am sorry to hear about your father. His place sounds wonderful and I wish you great time there.
      Spring is often a time of surprising weather here, snow, rain, wind, squalls, kind of exciting. Often gray though with glimpses of sunshine. The two inches of snow was surprising.

  14. Such a beautiful place you call home ♥ I think all states have that saying :) We've had summer like days the past few but colder weather is on it's way...I'm praying not too cold because the plum tress are blooming today .

    1. Yes, that is scary when fruit trees are blossoming and weather gets cold. I lived in S. Ca. most my life and the weather was not so wild and changeable. Many places are that way though.

  20. Love that little chickadee. What is that one called? The snow looks wonderful on your place. The little tree in the pond reminds me of a young girl holding our her skirts.
