In Minnesota in the winter, if you find open water it means that you just might see some wildlife. We stopped at a creek just north of us.
Someone had been fishing without a license. Not only that he was a sloppy fisherman. He killed some fish and left them in the icy depths of the creek.
Chance had to investigate..yup dead fish..perfect to roll in..nope we stopped him just in time.
The Bald Eagles sure do leave a mess. I have never understood these creatures..I suppose they were interrupted and will come back later to clean up their mess..they weren't anywhere in sight. They are pretty much a useless bird in my opinion, and their numbers are increasing. There used to be only one pair in this area, now there are a number of pairs. Soon they will give up on fishing and concentrate on road killed deer as soon as the snow starts to melt in the ditches and the dead deer are uncovered. They pick the carcass clean until there is nothing but bones left. Yup..perfect national symbol:(
