As I was driving across the local bridge this morning, I looked upstream and saw 2 adult Bald Eagles in a tree. I decided to try and slip closer and get some photos, but when I eased quietly onto the unpaved access road to the area, they flew away in 2 directions before I could get a shot. Muttering a couple things under my breath, I looked into the adjoining field and saw something wonderful and a sure-fire sign of spring: a huge flock of robins! I think I was happier to see them than the eagles as they were the first of the year. The lighting was horrible since we are in the middle of the nor'easter that is battering everyone else much worse than us. After a couple errands, I decided to see if the eagle that flew downstream was still in the area, and he was!
