A Touch Of Spring, Then Winter, No It's Spring!

Wood Ducks
Only nesting Eagles will stay, the rest trade places with Turkey Vultures for territory and food along the roadsides.
And icicles will leave with them!
Only when one is clear away from the car can cold turn back to winter.

I know I buried that somewhere near here.









Male and female Cardinals look like a reflection in a window almost.

Finding Hints Of Spring

A happy robin


Huddled from the cold
When out with my grands, I take a alternative activity. Really wears them out. there are tiny plastic clubs for them also. We just smack them around the yard, or at a park.





It's really ba-a-a-a-a-d outside, even with boots. Soggy, muddy and streams are going over their banks. Not the best to travel in since many roads are getting closed.

These guys are migrating more north. A few will stay and nest. All the Iowa counties a\have nesting pairs . I have watched a few nests for years. Have you ever watched the live camera for the Decorah Eagles? A treat to watch, go online to try them out.
On a perch looking for a meal
Please don't look at me
Hmmm, you could be my meal I see.

Snow Art

Clouds swirl
In cadence with a woodpeckers tap
A new day begins
As the land absorbs many new colors



Snow geese

Early In My Daze


Reflecting on days gone by
I always think young
As I remember skating all around.
Looks like another camera buff baby. He is harmless, look at that grin.



Charlotte crawling just turned 9 months. They can just go across the road for this beach in Florida on the Atlantic Ocean. 
I love watching birds wrestle with the shell peanuts.


Foxy Lady



That morning light
Can really amaze me
So you have to be ready each and every day
To find it waiting.
