Molly Loves Her New Hat ..NOT!

Short Days – Early Nights

November is such a gray and gloomy month! Most of the trees have lost their foliage, and it seems the skies are gray most of the month. It is also the month when we “fall back” and the clocks go back an hour – causing the darkness to invade our lives earlier and earlier until December 21st. It takes me weeks to get used to it being so dark so early! I do not enjoy it being pitch dark when I get out of work! At about 5:30 PM, my body seems to think it is time to go to bed. I don’t mind the temperatures cooling – but I do mind the time change and the early darkness!

This weekend, the sun hid itself well. Saturday – though it was dark and gloomy – I was lucky enough to have a great bald eagle sighting along the Merrimack River in Boscawen. The barren trees – do make it easier to spot eagles perched in them. I spotted the eagle in a tree about 11:30 AM and then walked to the river and watched it for awhile. It then took off and flew over me a couple times before flying out of sight. I posted some of the better shots on my Flickr photostream. Below is a sample shot.

I never tire of seeing eagles! They are such magnificent birds!
