The Eagle Has Landed





When I first saw this I had hoped it wasn't an eagle, but turned out to be a goose who left this world.














This was a good find until I noticed it still had a piece of the skull attached. Deer shed antlers this time of year, but this poor guy maybe got hit by a vehicle.


This is Glady's Black, a self-taught ornithologist who inspired my love for these avian creatures. We dedicated a look out area to her on this day.  She has had a few books written about her and lived a very interesting life. People would meet at a designated place posted on a bulletin board at a nature center  in her hand written scrawl. It was a pleasure to always go with her and listen.

  6. I saw a bald eagle sitting on top of a light pole a couple of days ago. He was looking very majestic as he surveyed his domain. How did that woman get the owl to perch on her arm?
