I took this on St. Patty's Day, March 17th. Today (March 21st) is the first day of spring. It snowed.
But look at these glorious bald eagles perched on a tree. I was with Jane Atuk on our way into the Matanuska Valley when we stopped on the road to get a shot of these stately birds. With the growing daylight (we're up to 11.5 hours/day), the migratory waterfowl are beginning to honk across town, always a very happy sound, and the eagles are back knowing the salmon will be running soon. Yippee! Another winter almost over.
