I’m too tired to post much tonight.
We hustled today to get out the door by 11 so we could head over to Sweetwater Creek State Park to do some birdwatching. It was a miserable day by most standards. It was cold, it started raining, it was gloomy looking all day.
The boys were excited to get back over to the park, we’ve been away for more than three weeks, so it was nice to pull in by the bait shop and see the resident geese and ducks.
We we’re there long before the youngest saw something white fly into the trees across the lake. He’s eight years old and he spots more birds than the rest of us combined.
Anyway, here’s what we saw:
I know this post is probably a little bit repetitive for some of you. If you have connected with me on Facebook then you’ve seen them already, but for those of you who haven’t you can see them at flickr.
We’re not sure if this is the same eagle we saw in October, but it sure was beautiful (and a lot closer than the one in October).
Now, I need to get to bed. It’s almost midnight and there’s talk that I will driving them back over to the park around 9am. We’ll see about that. We’ll definitely be back over at the park tomorrow, I’m just not sure how early it’s really going to be. With my luck, it will be 9am.
There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.
