Rough-winged Gadwall?

No de-icing crew available and flight surfaces may be temporarily affected so all departures delayed (the hanging lump of ice a major potential impact on aerodynamics).

The male (and female) both appear to have frozen to the ice overnight. No immediate danger and milder temperatures imminent.

PS. Re. the last post - I am a big fan of Linda (wonderful person) and can recommend the recent CNN documentary.

Lola is fast. Lola is smart. Lola cheats. Lola launches forward when I am in the middle of my back swing!  My wife thinks she can train Lola for agility competition.  I think Lola is better suited for drag races than for autocross meets.  Lola might do well in a tractor pull competition.  Lola is exceptionally large for a female of the Bouver des Flandres breed.  Bouviers were bred to pull milk carts and herd oxen to market and serve as a general purpose farm dog who could protect people and property and livestock from intruders.   

Lola at Full Charge!

Eat hearty mis amigos.  Eli Wallach and his band of squirrel banditos are planning their raid upon our village.  Steve McQueen and the Magnificent  Seven only arrive late in the second reel and well after the conclusion of the Elmer Bernstein opening theme.

19 or 20? I am not sure if there is another Eagle behind Eagle 15. If you click on Seattle's photo in the original post it takes you to flickr, and there you can zoom in on the photo very well.

This will be a guessing game!  How many eagles are in the tree?  I think I got 16 - but you gotta look hard!

Eagle tree 2 (1 of 1)

Whether there's an eagle #14 or not, that's an impressive number to see clustered together. Hopefully my girlfriend will be blessed with seeing numbers like this while she's vacationing in the Vancouver area this week. 🤞

If she wants some suggestions for WA areas near the boarder let me know.  I'm more than happy to help

Thanks for the offer Seattle, but the end of her week out west is tomorrow, which she'll be spending with her niece, and then she's coming home Monday.

What about the back of the tree? 🤔  Could be double that number! Nuts either way.

It's a daily occurrence here.  The "eagle tree" is across the creek from this one.  We had 125 eagles in about 20 minutes of counting.  There's a also a golden hanging around!

That's too bad.  We have a cat 4 (I think)  bird a few hours away.  A Siberian accentor visiting and we may chase it tomorrow.
