I took this picture last year on May 30th. This is the time of year for a family of geese to swim by, or to walk across the road.
As I bike through the woods I see evidence that the beaver have been busy, They are pretty good at chopping down trees.
Not the best shot but the best I could do from a distance without a tripod. I could see her little chicks in the nest a couple of times. I have often seen bald eagles fishing in the river and I have seen four occupied nests this year. Eagles like to build their nests up high and in places where they can get a good view of the ground below.
Looking to South and east in the top photo and to the West in the bottom. Taken from an upper floor at the pointe in downtown Saint Paul.
Oh yes I have taken this photo a few times. It is the view I had on Sunday from my bike along the trail from the top of the highbridge that goes through the parks along the river. Sunday was a beautiful day to ride.
