Eagle On The Mountain

This Eagle caught Ken's attention Sunday morning.  I love the majesty of the eagle.  We are so blessed to live in the Madison Valley where we have the pleasure of seeing them often.

The birds are letting us know spring is here.  A pair of sandhill cranes were spotted doing their mating dance.

Temperatures have been lower than normal for this time of year.  It has been twelve degrees in the mornings with highs from thirty to the mid forties.  We are expecting snow and rain this week.

The Robins are Here

Yesterday our yard filled with Robins.  Temperatures have been in the twenties to forties all week.  The snow is melting and you can see a few blades of green grass trying to surface.

Ken went to the river yesterday.  Most of the ice from the gorging has melted.  There are only a few patches and the remnants hanging onto the banks.

Everyone is talking about the challenges of having the snow melt so quickly.  Friends report rivers flowing through their yards and now the mud.

We are under a winter weather watch today with the possibility of 2-5 inches of snow. Right now it is raining.
