Shooting the bird (s)




Snow Geese


Horned Lark


Cedar Waxwing



Krist came down for a visit today and I took her on a road trip looking for the eagles. Not only did we spot one, there were a lot of other types of birds along the way. We'll have to do this again some day.

What a poser!





I think Miu likes to be in front of the camera. Here she is doing a little posing for me and checking out the lighting. She wants to do a little traveling too I think ;0).

Hoar Frost






Larry and I were out looking for eagles this morning. Didn't find any eagles but got some pictures of the frost out in a field before it melted away. I think this is called Hoar Frost.

Bad Feather Day!





We had some strong winds and blowing snow on Friday and the birds were just loving it. Strange creatures! There were more out in the yard that day than there are on a nice sunny day. ???

Road Trippin






Larry and I were road tripping almost the whole day on Sunday. We were looking for those bald eagles. We went and checked the nest that we found but no luck there. We did find about three more nest that look like they might be eagle nests. One is not possible to get to, one I wouldn't have a clue where to even look for it, the third, fortunatly is easy access like the first and, I know how to get there. So now we have two that we can keep an eye on.


Along the way we also spotted other wild life amoung other things. We found an old Studebaker left behine a long time ago. A coyote was chasing birds in a field. We saw at least 100 wild turkeys, a stray cat and also watched a fire being put out.

Eagle Nest?





I think Larry and I have found and eagle nest. We didn't see any in the nest but there was an eagle flying nearby but we're not sure if it's an eagle nest. I will be checking it out often to see if there is any activity.

We are keeping the location secret so there won't be a bunch of people flocking to the area and disturbing them. It is really awesome to be able to see a bird that was once on the endangered species list.
