It's been a while since I checked on the eagles nest in Lake Sawyer Park, but as of yesterday, still no luck in being able to see nest activity. Too much winter storm damage to the nest I guess, though the eagles can be seen around the lake most every day. A lot of good news, however, starting with the many improvements and new signage recently installed by the Lake Sawyer Park Foundation. Really well done! Many thanks all.
Some more good news. The park is alive with flowers beginning to bloom and the first dragonflies I have seen this year. Otters seem to be making regular rounds of the lake and the osprey are very active now, though I have yet to find their nest - somewhere close to us at the northwest end of the lake. Here is one on patrol down by the park.
Here's another shot taken from our dock earlier in the day showing an osprey after just catching a fish and evading an eagle that was trying to steal it.
A sure sign of spring is honeysuckle beginning to bloom.
It doesn't get any greener than it is now. I love seeing all the maple leaves providing neat shadows along the trails.
Who doesn't like dragonflies? Something primordial about them and amazing colors.
The ducks and geese are scarce right now, tending to their recently hatched chicks and hiding them from the eagles. Time for people to go flying too.
Lake Sawyer and Lake Sawyer Park - what amazing assets for our community.
