The most often used word to describe eagles would likely be ‘majestic’. (For those of you who saw my Facebook post about the eagle in our yard, please read on: there are new photos in this post.)
Last Wednesday evening, Motor Man and I were sitting at our kitchen table, having dinner. Something outside the window caught our attention, and we soon realized we had visitors in a nearby tree.
At first, there were two: one on the branch above this one, but that one didn’t stay but a few minutes.
Knowing he would fly away should I open the door, I took pictures from the kitchen window. I soon discovered that an upstairs window provided a better opportunity. (I wonder if his ‘eagle eye’ spotted me?)
I took lots of pictures, and can’t decide on a favorite.
Then I decided to venture outside to try to get a better shot. I was doing okay until I stepped on a twig, and off he went.
Yesterday afternoon, Motor Man and I arrived home, and he glanced out our kitchen window. He whispered: “Look at that! Get the camera!”.
We were happy to see him back in our yard, and hope that’s a sign of things to come.
But, almost immediately, we wondered if he may be injured. I opened our back door and, intentionally, wasn’t quiet about it. He quickly put our minds at ease. (Later, I researched and learned that eagles DO “sit” on the ground, apparently for long periods of time.)
I apologize for disturbing you, our majestic friend. Please visit again soon, and stay as long as you like.
