I think I'm burned out, or have cabin fever, or as my husband says I'm "shack wacky". This winter seems really long and is predicted to be even longer with most of March being snowy and cold. Having a sore knee has kept me in the house and I haven't really even been able to exercise....yes, you can actually miss it if you can't do it!However, looking on the bright side....okay I'm looking ....looking ....looking ....oh, there it is! The Bald Eagles are starting to return for the Spring! Over the past few years we are getting more and more Bald Eagles in Southern New Brunswick and, lucky me, they seem to enjoy the creek that is below my house. The above is a view from the back of my house. We had a lot of rain on the weekend and the creek overflowed some, but in the centre of the picture there is a black spot. That's one of the immature eagles! There is another one just on the edge of the creek bed too.
This is a zoomed in picture of three of the immature eagles (there were six all together). They don't have the white heads right now, but they will soon. Lately I've seen two mature eagles flying over the house with their white heads gleaming. Simply stunning and what a gift to see them!
