Jim and I had a special run along the Iowa River yesterday. Every year it happens, as we adjust to running in the cold: the bald eagles come to town. Today we had our first sighting – 4 of them soaring high in the sky! They are so magnificent to watch. Imagine our surprise when we also saw 2 pair of bluebirds fly right across our path! We rarely see bluebirds here in Iowa (and miss them – in GA we had a family that lived in a house next to our arbor). The beauty of seeing all those awesome birds nearly made us feel like we were flying, too!
