Haven't had too much to blog about this winter ... has it been obvious? On the weekend I got a sudden severe sore throat, which turned into a dry cough. My planned visit to my dad had to be cancelled which was really frustrating. I wallowed around the house on Saturday morning, and then my husband asked me to come and see an open house to get my mind off of things. We drove up to Lake Scugog (Skoogog) just north of us to see a little log cabin cottage that had been turned into a house years ago. Not that we're planning on moving, but one day we would like to move to a place with a couple of acres. Hey, it's a dream.
On the way up I noticed a huge bird soaring over the road and twisted and turned to get a good look. It was a bald eagle!! We don't normally have bald eagles here, and they were pretty much wiped out in this area with DDT back in the day. I have seen one in the springtime a few years ago soaring alongside Dundas Peak (Niagara Escarpment), but never one in my area (keep a watchful eye over there Margie!). I could clearly see his white head and white tail. A real treat for me! I urged my husband to stop the truck! and I whipped out my
camera sigh...phone :( and took a few shots. These were just for evidence you understand, I knew it would be a miracle of the photos even turned out. Can you see him? Right there flying above the wires. No? You might think it's a speck of dirt on your computer screen (actually the specks of dirt on my computer screen are larger than the eagle image!)
|a helping arrow to pinpoint the eagle ;)|
Okay, so maybe it's more just a shot of a typical country road in Ontario for those of narrower views. But if you broaden your mind, you might just see the eagle in this next cropped (very cropped) image:
Gosh I miss my camera :[
Thanks for stopping by to share in this small bright spot of my recent days.
