Happy Easter

Rejoice for  He has risen.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”…Matthew 28:6

According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday). The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to have occurred between AD 26 and 36. Easter marks the end of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The last week of the Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus.

Easter,Crown,Thorns

The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe John 19.2
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

Birding in Michigan

Birding in Michigan

Feb 15, 2014 was an unexpected treat for area bird watchers. The Blue Water Bridge spanning the Saint Clair River, between Port Huron, Michigan and Point Edward and Sarnia, Ontario was the site of a mass waterfowl migration.

The Blue Water Bridge is at the juncture of Lake Huron and the St. Clair River. This year there was a rare sight as thousands of ducks from the North made the open water near the bridge home. Michigan has most of the Great Lakes frozen over this year. That has forced many of the northern birds to come South to find open water in which they can fish. Port Huron Michigan.

The record cold temperatures that had frozen 92% of the open water in the Great Lakes this year had caused the wintering waterfowl to look for food in the open waters near the Blue Water Bridge.

The record temperatures added danger to the waterfowl search for food.  As the Merganser ducks dive deep for their food the water droplets start to freeze encasing their bills closed.  Needless to say nature is quick to put an end to their suffering.

Golden eye on the moveA rare sight in the Blue Water Bridge area was the large number of Goldeneye ducks. The black-and-white Common Goldeneye is one of the last ducks to migrate south in fall. They often will winter as far North as open water permits this year North was near the bridge.

Winter versus Spring

As the calendar marks the beginning of Spring, Winter has set in and has made up its mind to stay, the dance begins. With Winter and Spring entangled in a frozen vortex, nature is caught in the middle. The egg shape is symbolic of hope that warmer days will return. Macomb Orchard Trail Washington Michigan
