No joke this time (the last time, almost exactly a year ago, I was pulling your leg). I was driving down the road today and saw a really large bird flying ahead of me.


Then the tail showed, and I knew I was chasing an eagle. It settled in a tree.


The crows showed up and started harassing the eagle, so they all flew to another tree, where there was a second eagle.



I watched them for a while, but the crows chased one of them off again.


Just a nice interlude in the middle of a work day.

We saw an Eagle too the other day.

This kind of makes me glad that Ben Franklin lost his bid to make our national bird the turkey. Some folks, however, might argue that it would be more appropriate these days.

fantastic sighting.

What a spectacular incident! Heck, I was thrilled when a ladybug landed on me once!

Stu- they are around more and more places.

Chuck- majestic, even if they are scavengers

Ann- always exciting

Joyce- ladybugs are good too! (if you ever see one that isn't the stupid Asian kind any more)
