The cold part...
The cool part...
Sundays in the winter a woman feeds bald eagles in the VFW parking lot in Eagle River. The eagles start showing up about five minutes before she pulls up, opens the back of her Jeep, and starts tossing out meat scraps.
It's amazing. There were probably 30 eagles there today, all flying around waiting for their chance to get some meat. It reminded me of seagulls around a fishing trawler. Others were hanging out in the trees, waiting.
And bald eagles are huge. Amazing. We were about twenty feet from them, they flew almost right over us. So completely cool. (And cold. We were standing outside in twenty below weather. Even the eagles couldn't completely distract us from how cold it was.)
This is a different species of eagle, I think, but I don't know what kind of eagle it is.
Also, Zachary asked me to mention that Jessica is a terrrrible texter. I don't know what this means. Sorry, Jessica.
