Eagles, Shorebirds and 4 Planets

  Friday morning saw a 3 Bald Eagles circling over the shoreline on the road leading to Ludington State Park.

   At the south pier of Ludington Harbor only saw a couple of birds.

  After work on Saturday morning drove to a scenic overlook to view 4 planets and the Moon in the eastern sky.

  Mercury is actually also in the photo above, but it doesn't show up in the compressed file that this website supports. It is a little easier to see to the lower left of the Moon in the photo below.

  On my way down from the scenic overlook after sunrise I spotted a few Lapland Longspurs.
