Welcome to the Pine River Review. Our sight is dedicated to our little homestead located along the Pine River tucked inside the Chippewa Nature Center's 1400 Acres of wild in Michigan's lower penninsula. We love to share our pictures, video, comment, and our own homespun music. Step inside our world as we celebrate this beautiful nook!

Ducks In The House!
I can peak out my sliding glass door and look down the bank to the Pine River and see them feeding by the far side. They are my new neighbors, a family of Mallard ducks. You can tell though that these are not citified ducks such as the ones that live near my son. These Mallards are always on high alert and in order to sneak out the door and creep up to the edge of the high bank to get a picture of them it takes the height of stealth. Female Mallards are considered dull in comparison to the males but this is just human foolishness. Consider the variations in the coloring of these two buff beauties. It is fun to have them around but the season is moving along and just like the Canadian geese they will be flying off.
