land of the free

I heard a racket in front of the house and looked out my front window to see a bald eagle in the road being harrased by crows.  The eagle picked up a little road kill snack and flew into a tree in my neighbor’s front yard.  This is only the second or third time this has happened in the 6+ years we have lived here, all in the last year too. It always amazes me how large they are, you forget when all you see is pictures. 

I remember in the 70s when they were put on to the endangered species list am so happy that these birds have made such a quick recovery, as many species who are listed never recover.

  1. Ok, that is REALLY cool. Little too urban here to see eagles in the city – but there’s usually a loon or two that spends the summer in the middle of Lake Calhoun (about 15 blocks from me) – it’s really cool to be walking there early in the morning and hear loons.
