I had to run to Lansing at about 3:30 yesterday afternoon to pick up K. It has been snowing wet and sloppy snow all day. In a bare tree where the highway crosses the Upper Iowa River were two bald eagles. I didn't have my camera. I need to start carrying it with me! Anyway, on the way back home, one was still there, but the other had flown. The one that was left was all puffed up and miserable looking from the wet. In fact, he looked like a giant Jack-Jack when Jack-Jack is cold and miserable. It was pretty funny, because bald eagles are HUGE.
I raced home for my camera but he was gone by the time I returned.
