The Eagles

Today we braved the cold weather and headed north to the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge.  Every year around the first week of December, the eagles (birds, not singing group) flock to the refuge.  This year was no exception.  It is so fascinating to see these majestic birds in the wild.  We drove the 10 mile loop through the refuge and saw a lot of eagles.  We also had a flock of pheasants fly across the road in front of our car.  The noise of over 100,000 snow geese was amazing as we slowly drove through the refuge.  Tomorrow is eagle days at the refuge.  They were setting up food areas, bus shuttles, and all the other things that go with large crowds.  So glad we beat them to the rush!
