Three Bald Eagles passed over our air space today (5/7/13).
I was talking with Ranger Rock at the Bungee Jump about the chickadee and bluebird nests here at the Museum, when he looked up and saw one, then two, large birds soaring in the gray, overcast sky above. Both birds were Bald Eagles.
And finally, almost fifteen minutes after the first two eagles passed, a third came into sight riding the beginnings of the same thermal as a Red-tailed Hawk.
I’ve said it many times in this Journal, “Keep your eyes to the skies.”
(The sky was a miserable gray sheet of a backdrop for photography so I took the liberty to lighten up the images a bit with computer software.)
