It is a beautiful morning, the lake is calm but the birds are noisy (the little ones want me to go in the house so that they can have their breakfast). There is one boat on the lake, checking nets I presume. One pelican swimming toward town, and many pelicans across at the point. Two herons and an eagle have flown by. Two ravens are busy gossiping next door. The air is smoky with a soft grey rim around the horizon. A jackfish just jumped. the little birds are very hungry, they are coming closer, but will not actually come to the feeder while I am out here. I think I will go in and let them eat. The pelican has turned and is swimming back this way.
