For the last couple of years, Elenka has made her late winter calendar move a bit quicker by occupying herself with 'bird watching' in Iowa. No, you don't have to go back and read that last sentence over. You heard me right. Bird watching. Iowa. Eagle nest viewing to be more specific. The Decorah Eagles webcam. Have you heard of it? I must admit. It is quite mesmerizing to watch. As of this morning there are two baby eaglets born last week wiggling around in the nest and one last egg awaiting a 'piping'. So why are we looking at a photo of the Portland International Jetport this morning? Well, you see she's had so much fun tracking the eagles over the last few years that this winter she added a Great Horned Owl cam on Skidaway Island, Georgia to her rapt viewing repertoire. I must admit she got me hooked on that owl cam thing. The two baby owlets were a riot goofing around, flapping their wings and 'branching out'. But why the Jetport? Well, there have been snowy owl sighting there and in an area near Biddeford Pool to the south.
So tomorrow morning we are heading off on a snowy owl hunt. I'll be chauffeuring, and she'll be manning the binoculars.
Ha! While the rest of her family is enjoying an Easter in sunny, hot Florida (86 today), we'll be out chasing snowy owls in 40 degree weather and the chance of rain.
What's wrong with this picture?
A hunting we will go...
The things I do.
