|BALD EAGLE ON CHEQUAMEGON BAY|
Thursday, 7:45 AM. 43 degrees F at the ferry dock, 40 on the back porch. The sky has a high overcast and it is raining, as it did all last night, almost two inches thus far. The humidity is 91% and the barometer has begun to rise, predicting a nice weekend. But, for now it is still very rainy and windy, the rigging in the sailboats at the marinas humming loud enough to be heard up here on the bluff.
We have family in Weatherford, Texas, and visit there often in winter, so I track the weather there. This morning the t conditions are exactly the same as in Bayfield, so it looks like this weather system covers the entire mid-section of the country.
Yesterday was another beautiful day, at least until evening, when it began to rain. We saw three mature bald eagles in quick succession yesterday, the one above near Ashland on the Bay, another perched in a tall aspen high above Hwy. 2, and one feeding on a dead deer on the side of the same road. Yes, bald eagles will feast on carrion.
It was a good day for eagle watching.
