These Are Lean Days

Last Friday ~ It was a perfectly beautiful day in the central interior, mild enough to stop and take pictures.

A Bald Eagle perches in an old poplar tree overlooking the frozen lake and narrow river channel.

The patient eagle watches and waits for something to turn up.     

It doesn't look very promising though.  There is only one patch of open water in the distance.

Today ~ The temperature dipped again overnight, and when we woke up this morning  it was -22C.  The birds were here at first light.
