Critter Watch

Happy Easter! This is Bird Day! I heard a loon when I woke up this morning. I'm so glad they are back and living close to us.
We've been seeing sandhill cranes for a week or two in the pasture. They clack and clatter like crazy.
There was one big tom turkey strutting around with his tail feathers displayed and 12 hens wandering around. He kept herding them where he wanted them to go.
Best of all, we saw two eagles circling each other and going higher and higher into the sky. I got dizzy watching- they were directly overhead. Hope there's a nest nearby!

  1. I would've loved to have seen those turkeys. Before I moved to MN I'd never seen wild turkeys before; I love how they are everywhere here!
