Deer under one of our apple trees.  As winter sets in harder the deer often come up to our yard to eat apples and seed out of the bird feeders.

Bald Eagle south of St. Charles, Mn yesterday.

Trumpeter Swans Whitewater valley, north of Elba ,MN.  We saw about 40 Trumpeters yesterday-that is more than existed in the world in 1930.  They have, unlike most birds, made a great comeback.

The Trumpeters have moved to one of the open spring fed ponds in the Whitewater valley.  They will tough it out as long as there is open water.

Immature Bald Eagle.  They are often mistaken for the very uncommon Golden Eagle.
