Ha! I was right. I wonder what you are going to get today (Saturday)? Cold and dreary.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, my Wunderground Friends and thanks,
Approvers, for the "Blue!" It's fun to get something a little different on these very colorless gray days! I'm sure behind these gray heavy clouds there is a beautiful colorful sunset. Just not here!!

Quoting luvne32:
I was on a boat tour in MA once and was told that if an eagle hooks his claws on a fish which is too heavy to lift, it is unable to "unhook", and will drown. Don't know if this is true, but the source seemed informed. This fish obviously was just not hooked well.


That is true of osprey, so it might be true for an eagle as well. I bet that eagle was very unhappy.

About Nikongranny

Nikongranny

Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
