Had a marvelous walk yesterday, January 4, in Woodinville where there is still a blanket of snow. We hiked along the Sammamish river trail and had lovely sitings.
A river otter playing on the opposite river bank slithering around in the snow clearly having fun, curling and sliding...on our side a Great Blue Heron watched quietly then flew across and landed quite close to said otter! The otter responded with an amazing "funky chicken" mating/territorial head jive after which she slooped into the river. Shortly after that a juvenile bald eagle took off from a tree top up the path and glided over a snowy field dotted with black geese...which all took off and the eagle soared in circles with great satisfaction for a few minutes!
All this made more dramatic by the contrasting colors of the wildlife on the white white snow.
|Old English |
Used to express joy, encouragement, or triumph.
1. A shout of "huzzah."
2. A cheer.
"Th'dragon is dead! Th'Knights o'th'Round killed'm, they did!"
And a rousing "Huzzah!" arose from the gathered masses.
