I hiked through Lewis Nine Springs E-Way and above average temperatures today. With the warmth and the sunshine it felt like springtime in January. It sure has been a strange winter so far.
Went for a walk on the water today (Lake Wingra). I got a kick out of the wild patterns of snow that the wind sculpted.
A photograph I did not take, of a bald eagle flying 20 feet above the Yahara River in Tenney Park.
I spotted the eagle while I was inching along in the middle of heavy traffic on my morning commute. With the lakes frozen, I assumed the eagle was looking for a meal in the still-flowing river. I was so tempted to turn off, park the car, and spend some time wildlife watching. But you’ve got to pay the bills, so I continued on to work. I wonder if anyone else stuck in traffic noticed the majestic raptor in the middle of the city?
