It is so eggciting to have EggFace.gif EggFace.gif now. Although I love watching eagles from all over, there is a special place in my heart for our eagles. HartSpin2.gif

I hope to get to the drug store today. Yesterday was very windy - I sure hope today will be calmer. I always feel when we get this far through winter, spring will not be far away. I am often wrong, but I do feel the worst is behind us now.

With everyone going bigger with their camera and lens.. I'm going to go smaller... am looking for a really good 'point and shoot' digital with zoom.. but I want it for purse... and kayaking.. can't take my big camera out in the water all the time.. still gets wet when boats go by ...my little coolpix just doesn't do it for me... Nikon makes one larger that I want to check out.. and the Lumix too...

Yesterday, when the male took off over my head.. with much flapping and noise, I found it 'raining fluff' from his feathers.. lots of down and tiny feathers.. lots of them.. floating all around...

Wow.. 4 in a row for me... will give it a rest for now.... wavey.gif

OH CAROLE--That poor Decorah eagle parent. ohmy.gif Our Channel Island Eagles really don't know what harsh/frigid incubating is all about.

Our little house finches are busy as always at the watering dish. Interesting .. they still are coming only in pairs, must be their time of the year to stay close to one another, nesting probably is getting closer.

It was so funny, Madam Finch wanted to bathe, but every time Mister finch flew up to a rail slat, she hesitiated. When he came back to the dish, she proceeded to splash and bathe, but, when he flew off, she immediately flew off to join him. I guess the little females want to stay very close to their mates now.

Let me know how that works out for you. I'm just so used to panning and scanning.

Good morning Cruzers.

Feels like Monday biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

EggFace.gif EggFace.gif yahoo.gif yahoo.gif applause.gif applause.gif

Yesterday we had the most amazing sunny day - it was a little cold though.

CatM - I'm with you - I'm in the Spring mode, once we have eggs int he nests its not much longer now. . . SPRING is in the Air. We saw many many Robins in Plattsburgh yesterday. Nice to see - they are about 3-4 weeks early. We will be in the 40s this week. The Ice Palace was demolished this morning. However - we do live in the adirondacks, we are due for a major storm - we always get a big one in March. . .

Two setups for two different situations. Having a good compact camera is a must too! $$$$$$ wacko.gif
