The Iowa Eagles

When we were in Iowa for the Easter holiday we took a little side trip to visit the eagles nest that you can follow via Ustream by clicking HERE. I was so suprised when we got there to see that it is located in a tree in someones back yard. From the video I always got the feeling that it was out in the country with a sparsely traveled road going by, but that isn't the case at all. Right across the road was a fish hatchery, which I'm sure the eagles visit on a regular basis, a well traveled walking path and several cars parked with people spending there afternoon watching the eagles. Isn't it funny how you can look at pictures or video and get a picture in your mind how something looks and then it turns out to be comepletly different.

Have A Great Day!


Look close and you can see the camera on the left side of the nest.

This is the fish hatchery, across the road from the nest.

The Egg Hunt

I just got around to uploading my photos to the computer from our last visit to Iowa to see family. And I had to share with you how my sister and I got our teenage kids to hunt for Easter eggs that we scattered around the farm yard. Give them a Kawasaki Mule to drive!! After all the complaining about being to old to go Easter egg hunting I think they had a blast!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I think the weather here in Wisconsin is finally going to warm up. Maybe I can start on the garden this weekend!!
