We bicycled around the lake this AM, when I did not have my camera. My Patty has good eyes and spotted some Cormorants on the lake. What were they doing here? I went back later in the AM and captured these shots with my camera. It turns out that the Double crested Cormorants nests in Northern Alberta. In the fall, they migrate to Belize. This is a distance of almost 4,500 km (2,800 miles), as the Cormorant flies.
Our little lake is stocked with trout, so it looks like the local fishermen may have a bit of competition over the summer.

Why do we come here? We really don’t know.
This pond is warm, so we go with the flow.
Some nice people stocked this little blue lake,
rest assured, our share of fish we will take.
Late in the fall, just before the big freeze,
we are out of here, to sunny Belize.
