When the boss returned from running errands he said two Bald Eagles were in the field just up the road and asked if I had my camera. Well yes so I drove up the road and there they were, about 100 meters from where i stopped. The brisk and gusty breeze made it a challenge to hold the camera still enough to capture a not bad image.
A seagull adds a touch of interest as it powers through a sunny, brisk winter day.
It’s hard times to be a songbird in our part of the world. While our normal high temperature is around freezing we have not been above -5C for 13 days now. We have filled all four feeders at least once daily during this time, often twice daily. I have not yet been able to take a good photo of any of our many visitors; here is a photo I took years ago of a Northern Cardinal after an early April snowstorm.

Turkey Vultures continue soaring above us; their dips, glides, and swoops are so entertaining.
I want to wish all my readers thank you very much for making time out of your lives to visit, and to like my posts when you see fit.
I also want to wish my Canadian readers a very happy Thanksgiving to you, and to the people you care about.
On this, Faye’s first free evening after 43? straight at work, we spent time on the deck. We derived a lot of pleasure from watching Turkey Vultures soaring, wheeling, checking. There are how many in sight?
It has been a good evening.
