How lovely !
That's their FALL coat.
I'll go back in a couple months and get a shot when they are full on wooly.
Not ALL the bald eagles up here migrate in the winter.
This is one of a nesting pair north of town whose home range includes TWO dams on the Wisconsin River, so they can fish year round.

(But if you want a BUNCH of eagles at one time this time of year, there are a couple sports on the Mississippi River or Green Bay where they gather to winter over en mass.
Still plenty of eagles by the open water below dams on the Wisconsin River

And the Trumpeter Swans are also taking advantage of the open water.

Spotted on one of my morning drives.
And YES, I really did say "Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty" as I took the photos.
Wow! He/she is really beautiful - but I don't think I would try to cuddle him/her !
State Highway 17 north of Merrill in the Hoarfrost.

Where did The Dock in Tranquility Bay go?
At least Jules the Bunny has a nice place to crash ~ UNDER the Dock.
Will you be moving soon?
Going to commute for a while. Only 50 miles.
People commute to big cities from the burbs that far.
And it's 50 miles FURTHER NORTH...
With TWO cameras on the seat next to me...
So it's All Good
50 miles in bad weather isn't that enticing though.
Define "Bad Weather?"
What some people call Hell, I call HOME.
Bad enough to be dangerous. I remember getting caught in a snowstorm in Fairfax County. My 15 minute drive home after they closed the school - too late - took over 4 hours because snow fell so quickly that road after road was closed off. It was wheel arch high by the time I got home.
I'm not a hero.
They have hotels a plenty where I work.
I drove across the entire UP of Michigan once...
In a blizzard...
To see my daughter for three hours on her birthday about 10 years ago.
You do what you gotta do when you gotta do it.
You know what Yoda said.
I drove all night
To be with you
Is that alright...................
