About a month ago I moved my office from one township where we provide service for the community to a shorter commute from home . Now I commute 1 hour one way instead of 3. I stay in an apartment away from home for 4 nights a week and come home to a new family every end of the week.
This evening I went looking for the "usual suspects" though without much hope since ice is still on the lakes in a lot of areas.
Boy was I surprised; Herons (GB) Eagles; Pelicans; Kestrel: Mergansers; Gold Eye; Loons; Mergansers; - all within a relatively small area vying for open water.

Processed these quickly on my laptop at my work residence. But i have hundreds that I am anxious to process once I get home.

Juvenile Baldy...kept getting closer. I expect he wanted to tell me something:D

"Clear the runway...I'm coming in hot" - actually given his breeding plumage I think he's hot for Mama pelican.
