    It has been a great morning...we have been watching the eagles flying around...I think they know that spring is close and the ice is thawing so we have open water in areas so they can fish...I love spring and I love all of the nature around us... This is the juvenile that has been coming around often. It is great to see the ducks swimming around too...Life is good!

    Good to know that spring is almost with you Sherry - wish I could say the same. It's been snowing here and the temperatures at night fall way below freezing. I'm waiting to hear the frogs croaking in the pond as they tell me that spring has arrived. Nature has a way of telling you which season it is without knowing the date - just like your eagles and ducks.

    Gail...I'm not sure i even know what a magpie is, I will look it up and check them out. We have crows /ravens all winter here. I just looked up magpies and they are a pretty bird, a lot better than a crow. Are they as noisy as a crow? I don't think we get them here or I would have noticed them...

    Hi Sherry sorry for being late on replying...magpies do have a lovely colour mixture but the noise they make goes through you [​IMG] and they're terrible for black things in the garden pecking at them and the young are terrible :rolleyes:
