Early Morning before work….

Took a quick run to Stoney Creek Metropark at day break for a trip around the lake… Most of it is frozen but the open area near the North Dam had a few Mute Swans, 20 Mallards and 4 Ring-necked Duck (64)… They were weary of me and never got too close for a good photo… While I was standing there a Bald Eagle flew over… its very cool that there presence on the lake is “no big deal” anymore (the eagles)… I see them on a regular basis during the winter…. At the nature center I took a quick look at the feeders… still don’t have Pine Sisken for the year…. as I was leaving a Pileated Woodpecker (65) called loudly from the Habitat trail… I could hear him hammering away on a tree…. I didn’t have time to photograph him…. work was calling so I took off…. Another day, another time…
