Hurrah for a payday Friday!

     A treat yesterday on the bus home--an adult bald eagle just lazily soaring in circles over the river valley, in no hurry to go anywhere. Such a treat--and seeing so many in the fall when I didn't see any this spring.

     Which reminded me of something I meant to post here for Oct 17 and forgot. On my drive down the Wisconsin side, where the road was in farmland a little further from the river, I saw something wonderful. A leafless spreading tree--perhaps an oak stripped by the wind. Sitting in the top was a big bald eagle, and sitting in all the branches from the middle on downward were dozens of black birds (at 55 mph I couldn't tell if they were crows or just blackbirds, anything looks tiny next to an eagle!). The whole thing seemed like some really neat sort of decoration, and I sure wish I'd gotten a photo!

     And a surprise treat this morning finding out that the founder of Elfwood left a comment on my Mod's Choice picture I put up over there a couple years ago. =)

Another eagle sighting. How great. Your description of eagle on the
tree with the black birds makes me think of Hitchcock's movie BIRDS.

That is wonderful on the comment left by the Mod founder. Would love to know what his commment was.

Yes, it really was quite a sight!

It's the last comment here. He said the picture made him look forward to winter. =)
