It's the Little Things
« on: January 07, 2017, 01:38:40 PM »
I love being out side in the winter time. That is what made ice fishing such a natural fit for me. I like winter I like fishing it was a synch that I would become an ice fisherman. So while I'm ice fishing I'm always taking in all the sights and sounds of winter. The wind the ice the sparce wildlife all paint a picture of what my great winter day is. Seeing a set of snowshoe hare tracks last month will be one of the highlights of this ice fishing season. Yesterday I had another glimpse of a rather rare but definitely unnoticed little bird. Whole I was loading up to leave Moon Lake I heard a tiny bird chirp in bird language it sounded like tssst very short hi pitched and delicate. I immediately thought of the pine siskin and looked up into the boughs of the great white pine next to my truck.  Nothing there but a tiny movement on the trunk of the pine had caught my attention. There for only the third time in all my outdoors hours was a simple little bird called a Brown Creeper. they are not much to look at. A tiny wren sized bird that hugs the trunks of trees so tightly that it blends in with the bark nearly perfectly. Only when they move can they be spotted. Made my day.

Enjoying the natural beauty God has provided is part of the experience. A sunrise is a special moment every day. It is much more enjoyable when you can be part of it rather than sitting in an office...........Mark
