Today Colton and I went to find bald eagles at the Farmington Bay Bird Refuge just off of Legacy Highway. The refuge hosts a Bald Eagle Day each year sometime in February. The refuge workers put something in the water to kill off the invasive carp species in the area, which draw the many eagles
For President’s Day my family is planning on going snowshoeing. Well, since I am a student, I can rent them from the school for a much cheaper price than most other places. After class on Friday, my dad met me at school and we Shuttled up to the recreational building on the very eastern side of campus. We left carrying five pairs of shoes and polls.
Many of you are familiar with the tune by Bob Marley “Three Little Birds,” with lyrics stating, “Don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing is gonna be alright!” Well this morning, I was early to the Front Runner station. There were four little birds sitting on the telephone pole, singing their little hearts out. I sat and wondered how many people were noticing the birds. For my part I just listened happily to their tunes, unperturbed by passing people, trains, and the cold.
We went skate skiing at Mountain Dell Golf Course a second time with Colton’s entire family. It was much harder than last time. The snow was icier and our skis were different. It was still a lot of fun though, and definitely a great way to stay in shape during winter. I gave up before everyone else did because it was just too hard; I took pictures instead.
