On the water
The river level is low. The water is cool. The colors are countless.
My yard has been busy with birds. Many species are migrating south for the winter, while other new arrivals will stick around for the season.
They often are so busy chasing rivals away from the birdfeeder, nobody gets to eat. There’s a metaphor there.
This dragonfly was dying at the end of its brief airborne adult life. The snake will find somewhere warm to wait out winter.
Bald eagle bonanza
One day on the river, it seemed like eagles were everywhere. I think most of them were paired up. They were moving constantly, new to the territory, bumping into each other’s comfort zones.
Log House Landing road offers not only a nice access to the river, but a beautiful drive up the bluff.
St. Croix 360 is totally supported by readers.

Great photos Greg! I cant get over all the interesting critters I saw this year on the river especially since it’s been so low.

Scandia. Couple miles upriver from William O’Brien State Park.
