Vol XVI – #270 – ‘Twas the Night before Christmas

…and all through the house everyone was stirring, including the Biscuit. With our cousins, nieces and nephews together for a traditional Christmas Eve party. It looks like the lake is iced over, but this goes out only 20-30 feet. Might be gone by Monday with temps in the 40s.  Photos today by Jim Burnham The 2017 Leland Report Calendar is now… Read more »

A perfect, crisp, clear fall day is here… perfect for watching various wildlife in Leland harbor: salmon swimming and jumping upriver, heron swooping over the breakwater, gulls flying about. Best wishes on this Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples Day!

Vol XVI – #171 – Trees Surgeons at Work

Watching these guys take these dead Ash trees down just wears you out.  We have been a captive audience since 9:00 this morning.  This is hard work.   Not only do they remove the dead they keep the good ones alive.  Deering has been treating two beautiful Ash Trees, male and female, for many years in our front yard.  They are about… Read more »

Vol XVI – #168 – Rain, Rain… Go

I would like to wish our grandson Matthew Kren a Happy 25th Birthday and congratulations to Jim and Erin Burnham, celebrating their 19th anniversary. Rain moved in around 8 am this morning and delayed our journey to the lakeshore.  I put the safari top on the Wrangler at noon and Biscuit and I headed for Fishtown.  Probably a dozen people, half with… Read more »
