Eagle Eye

Friday evening Tom, Vivi and I went for dinner at Chair 5 in Girdwood. Zoey was at her friend, Sarissa's birthday. To get to Girdwood we had to drive by Potter Marsh. First we went behind it on the Old Seward Highway. With Tom driving I was FINALLY

able to spot the eagle's nest. There was even an eagle in it! Can you see?

Then we drove back towards Anchorage so we could see the various ducks and geese in it. The light was not great, but we did see a trumpeter swan, a horned grebe, and a canvasback couple. I showed you them earlier. It was very peaceful and calm. Vivi even spotted the swan. She made up a whole story about the beautiful swan princess. We then continued to Girdwood as we could hear our tummies growl.

We had to drive back by the marsh on our way home, so we stopped again. The light was better, but the viewing was all gulls all the time. They were playing with the breeze and doing I do not know what. To view the gulls and the marsh we were looking east.

If you looked west you got a gorgeous view of Mt. Susitna, the Sleeping Lady.

I always love your photography! Those eagle photos are wonderful! It has been a while since I have visited any of our local nesting eagles!
