Science Adventures...

Wolf Lodge Bay on Coeur d'Alene lake is a wintering location for migrating bald eagles. The Science Mommy recently took her Kid Scientists on a science adventure...

It was around 5 degrees the afternoon we headed out to Higgin's Point to see the Eagles.  We all bundled up and stayed as long as we could!
Aiden enjoyed spotting the eagles with his binoculars so that he could see them up close.

Higgin's Point is a good spot for bird watching in the summer too, so there are mounted telescopes and interpretive signs.  

Their information about eagles is interesting and easy to read, for most Kid Scientists.

We caught this eagle fishing...thought the light was fading, we could see the fish caught in talons as the bird flew off.

The eagles are magnificent and it was well worth the trip to watch them.

You could quite possibly be the coolest momma I know. Love this, I forget that just because it is cold outside, doesn't mean you can't get out and enjoy it :)
