Cardinal and Junco
This hawk is nesting and feeding others already. It is a regular visitor, it must be around eight o'clock. It seems early to nest, but the weather changes. The newest pair of eagles are about a week late that I watch.
While watching some trick skiing on the Olympics, and watching a number ski backwards, I had to try it out. This shot is my tracks before I fell down and was unsure if to get back up without checking for protruding bones. It amazes me how they even figure out a routine. My kids are all snowboarders so I have seen a few daring tries. When storms hit the Rockies they are running for that new snow. I am really agile on ice skates, but those routines are very hard to do. I spent a whole morning once mostly falling down trying to gather a few dance moves on the ice with a partner. I grew up playing lots of hockey and ice skating. It has been a nice time watching a few events, but can be rough on your body. Hey, would you mind giving a poor fellow a hand up?
