As I was headed home several hours later, I passed close to the same spot and saw 2 pheasant roosters. What stunning color they have this time of year.
This is a good reminder for me to have my camera with me especially this time of year. I didn't have it when I first spotted the eagles so had to run back home for it. (and that 1.5 miles is a steep climb in slushy snow and ice. Good thing I have 4-wheel drive to get to my home!) The rest of the day proved fruitful. I also saw large flocks of Canada geese feeding on freshly sprung winter wheat, a flock of trumpeter swans in flight, deer, strutting tom turkeys, several prairie falcons, numerous mallard pairs, and a kestrel. And I wasn't trying to have wildlife encounters. Just running a couple errands.
How I love the arrival of Spring.
Happy Vernal Equinox!
