Again, I will be working at a site I typically work at only a handful of times during the course of the year (though I love the staff, and the site is gorgeous). Before heading up to the site, I am planning on doing a little eagle watching (although I saw at least two eagles on site last Tuesday). While I am the sort of person who seeks novelty, there are a couple of yearly pilgrimages I conduct as a matter of routine.
Gotta bundle up- with the wind chill, it's in the single digits (Fahrenheit), and the wind off the Hudson is particularly biting. It's a pity I have to go to work, 'cos a wee nip of brandy would be just the thing to take the edge off the chill.
UPDATE: I saw at least three (2 adults and 1 juvenile), and possibly five eagles (those suckers cover a lot of ground) at the park- seeing two enormous, predacious be-winged beasties cooing to each other like lovey-dovey budgies is an inspiring, somewhat comical sight. I also need to get a decent camera, like that Thunder guy. Yeah, it was my New Year's resolution last year... at least I kept the "100 pushups a day" one. When I got to the work site, I saw one, possibly two, adult eagles. Life is pretty damn sweet.
