In what year did construction staging get underway on the Portage Lake Lift bridge?

Original bridge built in 1875...replaced in 1901 and replaced with current bridge in 1959 (I think)...hmmm

Good morning! 10 here this morning. Our daughter in Florida told about seeing robins a couple of weeks ago. They better stay there!

In the 2005 picture, is that a Blue bird on the bird feeder? Do they stay through the winter? I thought they left for warmer climates. Where was that picture taken?

In the 2005 picture those are both nuthatches, we do have bluebirds feeding at the worms we put out for them on our deck rail all winter though.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 07:39 am:

Great pictures today. Have you ever watched the nuthatches walk up and down the trees? It's so cute.

Good morning everybody! Hope you all have a great day!

A cardinal has been singing in the backyard the past week or so, a sign of spring. I love to spot the red bird against the blue morning sky, it starts the day off right.

Congratulations to our Harrison Michigan, boys ski team for
taking 1st place in the state competition in Marquette. We are so proud!!!!

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 08:38 am:

We have Cardinals singing that spring is near song too Alex. It sounds as if they are saying "What Cheer" I have seen Robins in my backyard for 2-3 weeks now, and with the flood waters still pretty much around, I have been seeing a lot of Eagles flying over those waters. We have had a few days of motorcycle riding weather as well, still way too much sand on the streets for me yet, but spring can't be to far away.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 09:28 am:

Janie...you mentioned Cardinals, Robins, Eagles and MOTORCYLES all in the same post...I love it. Ride safe when the time is comes.

I heard that Idol is being moved to Wed. and Thur. Must be something very important taking it's place tonight. Wonder what that could be.........

The president might tell us tonight, "When you are at the brink of an abyss,
The only progressive move you can make is a step backward.

I saw a few brave robins here in southeast Indiana a few days ago. They appeared to be lost, and shivering.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 02:37 pm:

Nice pics.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 06:24 pm:

Where would that Brockway picture be taken from?

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 09:09 pm:

We have one fat (or maybe fluffed out?) robin that keeps on
hanging around our place here in Toronto. On Sunday, I saw it tilt
its head and listen for worms on our front pile of snow (lawn).
Snow worms would be his only reward. It's been snowy and cold
here in Toronto too.
