I mentioned that there were additional photo ops at Island Lake. One of them is a home which you might never see in the summertime. However, as the leaves fall from the bushes, and the cattail stalks dry and bend toward the water, it is revealed.
Because of the location and size, I'm guessing this is a nest of the Redwing Blackbird. Empty nests are sad in one way, but they are also good news-- the birds have flown and next year may raise families of their own.
