As I was getting closer to Fish Point, I saw a flock of turkeys in a field. Of course I had to stop.

And Our Other National Bird
It is said that Benjamin Franklin proposed that the turkey be our national bird. I'm not sure if he was serious or not but I've heard that turkeys can be pretty nasty when provoked. Anyway, it would have been interesting and unique. I don't think any other country has a turkey as its national bird.

An Eagle on the Saginaw River
I decided to head up to Fish Point again today. I thought that I might have better luck finding an owl. I ended up driving along the Saginaw River into Bay City when I saw something that caught my eye.

The Algoma Transport Passing St. Clair
I did not arrive in Marine City soon enough to catch this ship.

First the Herbert C. Jackson
I decided to go boatwatching again today. There were only two ships that I could catch though. As they released them with more spacing today.

A Festively Lit Up Alpena
After catching the ships, I decided to head up to see if I could see any snowy owls. I arrived too late to see any and even if I did, I think it was too dark for pictures. But it wasn't a wasted trip.
Since I didn't wish everyone a happy holidays, I will do it now.

And Finally the Algoma Transport
The next ship wasn't quite as close behind.
