After the big snow fall from the night before the sun popped out and warmed the earth up enough I went and picked up my Mom and we headed for Farmington Bay. We were very disappointed when we got to the second gate and it was locked. So much for our adventure getting some pictures of the eagles. On our way out I stopped at a little parking lot and could see some birds way up above me soaring. Even with my zoom I could barley make them out. But as they moved around in circles they got a little bit closer to me I could see it was a pair of eagles! Then we drove down the road to the nature center and got the pictures of these other birds up high in the sky in some man made nests. Mom brought her camera and even got out to take some pictures, we had an enjoyable afternoon and the fact that my sink was full of dirty dishes did not bother me one bit.
