it's happening again
The Winter Solstice brings a sense of relief that there is an end to the dark and cold days. But since the reality is that most of the winter weather happens after Solstice, there is always an inevitable letdown and that nagging feeling that....well, maybe this year spring isn't coming after all.
Driving to work yesterday I saw a mature Bald Eagle cruising in the 80mph windstorm we were having, flying effortlessly directly into the wind.
The Bald Eagles leave early in the fall, but some return as early as this.
So it is going to happen again. Only a few short days past Solstice and the birds are starting the new season even under cover of winter snow.
I wasn't fast enough to get a picture of my own of the eagle.
I found this picture here.
