Abbie, that's a great shot of the inside of the eagle's mouth!  It's not often we get to see the hole in the roof of the mouth (the choanal slit).  Thank you!  And thank you LB for posting the video!

The puzzle I'm about to post is in the same cut as Abbie used.  My time on Abbie's was 14:58, but my time on this next puzzle was 33:48  :o

This puzzle is a photo Glogdog took in 2012 of Thora, SOAR's educational eagle.  She was at the Fish Hatchery for the dedication of the new restroom facility.  You will know it's an easy one when I tell you my time was 5:43  ;)

I tried something new this morning so let's see if it works.  This is a crossword puzzle.  You will need to scroll to see the whole diagram.

I just noticed that I misspelled dictionaerie in the title.  ::) Or maybe Crossword Labs auto-corrected it.  ;)

Abbie, if you don't come up with answers- and I have a feeling you will - let me know if you want some hints or the answers.  ;)

Here is a pic of the Decorah race track, shared by Glogdog.  Dad is perched in the trees at the bottom of the pic.  Can you find him?  It was almost impossible to see him in the full size photo, but maybe those with better eyes than mine will spot him in this completed puzzle.  I will post another photo later with Dad's location circled.  Thanks Glog!
