I was pleased to hear from poet and artist Ellen Van Laar who lives up the highway on Superior in the Mamainse/Coppermine Point area, about 85 km N of Sault Ste. Marie. Ellen's love of nature is reflected in her whimsical poetry and vibrant paintings.
Old Woman Bay
Over the past few seasons Ellen has seen some great birds near her home - Blue Goose, White Pelican, Northern Mockingbird and Marbled Godwit.
Here are a few photos (Common Merganser and Brant) she sent.
