Yesterday as I was headed to Grand Junction to do some shopping, I saw an immature bald eagle circling above the river looking for fish. I was on a windy, curvy section of the River Road (Highway 128) but no one was coming behind me so I stopped for a second to watch it. It was huge! ...and I was so excited I got goosebumps! I reached for my phone to share it with someone....anyone....but there's no service on that road and I had to get going.
I did not take this picture, it's from a google image search...sorry!
In Grand Junction, Jennie and I went to the botanical gardens and then walked with her kids to the riverbank and took a short break. Then we shopped for a while and I headed home.
My last really cool bird sighting was a peregrine falcon (2 times now!) out near the park boundary. It was flying a little low, looking for rodents.
I'm so happy the snow's almost all gone!!!!
