And now I can say that I've spotted that other harbinger of spring--Bald Eagles. First come crows, then eagles. On Sunday, while on a hike with my family on the still frozen Jack River - perhaps our last trip out onto the ice for the year - we saw three Bald Eagles cruising above Johnson Island. I had binoculars handy, so we had a great view of them. As always when I spot them in the rather wintry northern springtime, I wonder: What do they eat? How do they get by when everything is still under ice and snow?
