Area trees popped with color last week, proudly showing off deep red, glowing orange, and bright yellow leaves against the blue sky. Several readers sent us their photos, including the one here of Upper Lake in Solon Township from Cherri Rose. While the color show is winding down, there are still some trees that haven’t yet lost their leaves. Get out there and see them while there is still time!

Cherri and Pete Rose, of Solon Township, sent us photos of a bald eagle they spotted near their home. “This bald eagle picked up a rabbit that had been hit by a car and carried it on to Upper Lake to have lunch on Saturday, March 14,” wrote Cherri. “We had seen the dead rabbit in the road earlier in the morning, then saw the eagle fly by our house carrying it. He spent about a half hour eating, then took a long drink from puddles of melted ice. It was awesome to be able to watch him for so long, right in front of our house!” she said.
Thanks so much for sending us your photos!
If you have wildlife photos, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with some info about them.

On Thursday, March 21, Cedar Springs High School held their “Montage” event, which is their annual talent show. I was very impressed with the truly talented students that entertained at this event. There were many excellent singers and musicians that brought down the house. And who knew that a martial arts demonstration set to music could be that much fun to watch! The most unique act was a modern dance that used colored “glow balls” performed in near darkness—simply superb. (I was glad I wasn’t one of the judges because so many deserved to win.) If you missed out this year, watch for it next year and see what the young people of our community have to offer!
