I took a drive over to Glenn & Kathy's lake cottage this afternoon. I needed to get out in the fresh air after a couple of days on the sickbed with a rotten cold & cough. On the way there, I stopped off to check an eagle's nest just West of Chetek.
|I tried a technique of holding my cellphone camera lens up to the eyepiece of my binoculars.|
I could see an eagle in the nest, but after about 10 minutes of watching, I didn't see a mate and I didn't see any little eagle heads popping up. I'll check it again soon and see if I can see if there are babies. It would be a treat to see them fledge off this nest if there are.
|This nest is huge.|
On my way to the nest, I saw this old barn, and when I got to the backside, I decided to pull over and take a few pictures. Then I saw that it is a beer barn.
This is a Leinie's ad just waiting to happen.
I stopped at a little roadside called Quaddary Creek to see if I might see any warblers. I did see a yellow rumped warbler but nobody else. It's a nice little spot not far from home. Next time, I'll bring my lawn chair.
|Do you see him?|
First road trip for the new sled.
|We're both getting used to each other.|
