One Last Snowy Post,I Hope

Forgive me,these pictures all have snow in them.I'm sorry.
I do hope that this will be the last snowy post this winter.
What I really wanted to share with you,are the birds,so please look past the snow and see the birds.


I was out looking for Bald Eagles and found this one sitting much too far away,but had to get a picture anyway.You know,I can never know if this will be the only eagle I will see that day.


Fortunately,it was not the only one I saw and some of the others were much closer.


This one was very cooperative and allowed me to get out of the car and walk around on the road,so I could get a shot without branches behind the bird.


Being satisfied that I got some decent eagle shots,I made my way home,but had to stop and capture this Horned Lark.This is one of the earliest birds to return in my area,but it is also a very skittish bird and seldom sits still long enough to get a shot.Once again,distance was a bit of a problem,but at least I got a picture.


I will close with this picture of a snow drift on  my yard,earlier this winter.I am glad it is now gone and certainly hope that the next time we see significant snow will be late in October or November.
We'll see,but I can hope.


Thought for today:
What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.

  2. You are so fortunate to see the bald eagles like you do. We have them here, but it is rare to see them. Such a gorgeous and magnificent bird that can really capture a bird lovers attention. Wow, Ruth....that is a lot of snow. We had a full day of sunshine...hope it's back tomorrow...

  11. Hi Ruth, Sure like those eagle photos. Wow, that 3rd photo ... nice!!! I am wishing you some warmer weather although I sure enjoyed your snow photos over the winter. I know it will not be long before you're showing us some of the spring flowers. I will be looking forward to that. I always appreciate your kind comments on my blog. John

  12. Great photos of the Eagles. We see many while out and about, but are seldom able to capture a photo, they know what we are trying to do and flee before we snap the picture!

  13. You can crop the picture to help zoom in on the eagle and see it much better!

  14. HI Ruth The eagle shots are great and I love the Horned Lark. The colour that you have for your text for thought for the day is very hard to read,

  15. I'm tired of snow photos too and have been hesitant to put any on my blog, BUT snow pictures with Eagles? That's another story! Our snow is gone except in the dark woody areas...I'm hoping we won't get anymore!

  16. Ruth, great images! You know I grew up in Manitoba and I never saw a Bald Eagle. And it wasn't like we weren't out there, cause we were always outside! I so happy to see them repopulating an area and there there for you to see!

  17. Hi Ruth, What a gift to be able to see Eagles nearby your house. I hope for your sake that winter is soon over there. It has been so spring-like here in Breckenridge, but I'm not fooled. I know there is more snow to come.

  21. Love...love your captures of the Bald Eagles and the Horned Lark isn't shabby either.
    Bet you are very tired of snow.

  22. Great eagles and the horned lark shot looks great to me. I never get very good shots of them. The only place I see them is on gravel at the stripper pits and they just don't photograph well with that back ground.
