We went birding today.

My daughter and I and another friend, Pat, went out to look for birds today.  We went to Fort Calhoun and then Boyer Chute and saw a bald eagle.  He was a huge bird and seemed right at home there in one of the tall trees.  We got some excellent pictures of him and then followed the road that goes from there to Hummel Park and finally Dodge Park.  We saw dozens of Pheasants and some Medowlarks too.
It was not a very nice day.  Snow insisted on falling and then rain mixed with snow and finally just rain.  We kept going though.  We then went to Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs Iowa.  We saw a bunch of geese.  They live there all year apparently.  They make a lot of noise.  The roads were getting pretty wet and fog had begun to move in so we went back to Omaha and ate at Ruby Tuesday to finish the day.  The temperature went up to about 37 degrees too today so it wasn't a fight to keep warm. 
We are looking forward to Spring which is really our bird hunting time and it is a lot nicer to search for them when the weather is nice.
