Possibly last outing day before weather turns wet (for a week)

The weather in the past two weeks have been nothing but pleasant - enabling me to go out everyday and take pictures. However, the weather in the upcoming week will not be so nice. Actually, this morning began with mostly rain, but I managed to catch a sunny break in the afternoon to go to the dyke. Below are my photographic journey.

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

Juvenile Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)
The juvenile Bald Eagle that I have been observing many days now.

I suppose these are its parents.

Sky-watch (2009-02-22)
The sky was quite beautiful when it cleared a bit. There was a partial faint rainbow on the right side of this picture. Not sure if it's visible or not.

A pair of Red-tailed Hawks!

Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)
This individual was the one on the left. Its wings were in quite awkward positions. I hope it was all right.

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)
Catching this Great Blue Heron in a weird acrobatic position was interesting.

Northern Harrier looking for a meal. Note the sharp small beak.

The Crocuses are here! Spring is almost here! Too bad it might snow this week. Crazy weather.

Saw this Bald Eagle perched on a tree in a residential area. This was me sneaking up on it from underneath and getting caught red-handed with the camera in hand. Oops. Hope I didn't startle the poor eagle too much, sorry.

Yesterday started out sunny for us too but the clouds rolled in by the afternoon. Today, foggy, a layer of frost on the trees and the threat of possible snow flurries over the next few days. No crocuses ... no spring here yet.

Glad you were able to get some good shots while you had sun to cheer you on!
