This statue was in a public space in Wabasha…Christina first saw it and I found it interesting especially w/ that perfect shadow!
The City November 16, 2012
Wabasha, MN has a whooping population of 2,500 people and is the oldest city in the state of Minnesota. It also boasts that it is the home of the movie “Grumpy Old Men”. We visited Wasbasha during it’s off season and it was very empty.
Full November 15, 2012
While at the eagle center we were lucky enough to see an eagle eat. Meet Harriet. Harriet too has an injured wing, and also if you notice her punk hair do, she also may have had some scar tissue on her head that caused her feathers to grow this way. Harriet’s favorite meal is rats, but her second most favorite meal is a rabbit. We learned that an Eagles beak is not that strong, they hunt primarily with their feet and claws by ripping their prey apart. When they eat they swallow the bones and all. Doesn’t sound very appetizing to me! Harriet had this rabbit down in minutes and afterwards looked very full!
Also, just to prove Christina and I were really together here is a quick picture. Both Christina and I are alike in that we both don’t like our pics takes. lol
Loud November 14, 2012
The injured eagles are in a room with a huge window that overlooks the Mississippi River. Whenever they see another eagle flying in their territory (which happened several times while we were there) they made a loud screeching sound to claim their territory. Once one eagle started screeching they all did….and boy was it LOUD!
