Bird watching and animals:
many, many hummingbirds - feeders and food provided; finches, blue jays, chick-a-dees, woodpeckers, flicker, eastern phoebe, nut hatches, warblers, ducks, loons, etc. Even a stately heron that sometimes visits our dock. There is an abundance of friendly chipmunks and little red squirrels that busily scurry about but always have time to be hand-fed unshelled peanuts! Our larger pets are the raccoon families that come around just as the smaller creatures go to bed. For the more adventurous, our country raccoons will, ever-so-gently, take pieces of peanut butter sandwiches, or a peanut, from your fingers! We have also had deer on the property.
There is an ever increasing interest in the planets, moons, clusters, nebulas & constellations. The annual recurring "Perseus" meteor showers are around mid August? no equipment needed - you only need to sit outside or lay on the dock to witness this grand spectacle of shooting stars!
Beautiful Winter Paradise:
LakeSide is a very different but equally beautiful paradise in winter. After the lake is completely and solidly frozen (usually by Christmas), it remains safe to be upon all winter (about 4 months). It is great for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
