Hubby and I decided to take a drive last Sunday since the sun was shining and the roads had been cleared after our 6 inches of snow Saturday night.
We found ourselves headed west towards the Mississippi River to watch the eagles.
Many others had the same idea.
These are some serious photographers and I felt quite out of place with my
digital camera, lol. Most all those people had big cameras with huge lenses.
You will never find me perching on icy, snow covered rocks at the water's edge in February to get a photo! If you click to enlarge this pic, you can see a man sitting on those rocks.
Hubby and I have never seen so many eagles or been that close to them before. We really enjoyed just watching them. Hubby kept saying he couldn't believe how big they are!
We headed back to the car and saw these eagles in the trees just above us.
We didn't know the one on the left had a fish until we got home and
uploaded the pics to the computer.
Despite the cold, it was great to get out of the house and enjoy watching the eagles.
Even though we had 18 inches of snow between Saturday and Monday, we've seen a few signs of spring this week. Three different friends said they saw robins and the local ice cream shop opened for the season. I can finally see the concrete of my front porch and sidewalk as well as some grass at the edge of the sidewalk. Our heavy rain and thunderstorms on Thursday caused some major flooding. The standing water froze over during the night Thursday and caused very dangerous driving conditions Friday morning.
Can you believe we'll be changing our clocks for Daylight Savings Time in two weeks? Now if we could just get the weather to cooperate and give us some warmer, sunny days instead of bitter cold and more snow returning this week.
Have a great Sunday!
