An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

Not seeing very many eagles, just a few at a time. They are all headed north, they seem to enjoy the cold. I miss seeing them every day, but know they will return. It is a delight to be so close to them while here, the season seems so short. I saw a nest, but it is on private land and hard to determine who owns it. Best to not disturb this area anyway. One can watch a number of eagle cams, the Decorah site is probably the most popular. I have fished a lot just across the road from there, catching some nice trout. This area is described as Little Switzerland with lots of tall hills, limestone cliffs and deep valleys to explore. I have regular routines while in the area and love to visit old haunts. The trout wake me up every day before dawn and the streams sing a song to put me a sleep.
I liked the green shimmer on the back of the head of this Lesser Scaup.
