An eagle in New Berlin!!!!???

Nearly as handsome as Barney

That’s amazing! We saw an immature bald eagle in a field along National, just east of Racine Ave some years ago. It was amazing!

You sure get around Barney

Hi Barney.

Hi Barney.Have a great day

The sun finally came out so we went on a ride with Barney Sunday afternoon. He reached 16,000 miles of riding at Waukesha's Frame Park. It was nice to get out for a while after almost 3 inches of rain in 3 days.

Barney has his "Chew Sticks" They are from a crab apple tree along the trail. He loves to take off the leaves and bite the twigs into little bits as the miles roll by.

Barney reaches 15500 miles and picks up a hitchhiker!

On Sunday Barney reached 15500 miles in his biking career. Warmer now so getting to go more often. On the way home on today's ride he picked up a hitchhiker, a dragonfly. He noticed it, but did not bother it. It rode in the bike cage til we got home and I took Barney out. Then after a while it flew down to the garage floor and then flew away non the worse for wear. Hope it stays around and eats some of our mosquitoes.

Why is Barney looking up? Check out what we saw on our April 24th ride on the New Berlin Rec Trail!

Update on April 26 @ 4PM, my friend Ralph S just texted and saw it soaring over the same area, so maybe there will be more sightings!

Barney was worried til I told him that they eat mostly fish :) He noticed it right away, I thought it was a red tailed hawk til I stopped and looked. I have never seen one here before so excited that maybe there will be a pair nesting somewhere near. I know that there are carp in the ponds by the trail.

Yea, I'd look & not touch myself. Love eagles such great birds.

That must be Benjamin the Biking Bald Eagle

Barney is on high alert 🚨

Be on the lookout for a missing African Gray Parrot.

Theresa Zuck this is the bird that goes for bike rides past our housesπŸ˜„ Have you guys seen him?
