Some Late December Sun At The PPL Wetlands
The sun was near its lowest position in the sky last weekend here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. It was a week before the Winter solstice and I decided to again hike in the PPl Wetlands in Salem Township, Luzerne County. I hoped to see the pair of mature bald eagles or the juvenile one I had seen the weeks before.
I didn’t see the mature bald eagles when I arrived. They are usually in this area of the preserve. In fact, there was little wildlife activity as I walked along the trails of the wetlands. I heard a few crows but didn’t see any birds at all in the wetlands.
I began my walk back still hoping to see the bald eagles. Unfortunately, I didn’t see them. I was disappointed, but it was still a nice day with mild temperatures for December. I had a feeling that the warm spell would not last very long. Snow and cold would be coming soon I am sure. But every warm day is a blessing for me. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike. PPL Wetlands December 15 2019
