|A bald eagle|
Our family went to a wedding in Pennsylvania this weekend. When we checked into the hotel, the hostess mentioned that there were a pair of bald eagles nesting by the lake on the property. So at seven o'clock in the morning, Connor and I hurried down to the lake with my camera. Connor reminded me that I should have brought a pair of binoculars for eagle watching. He also told me that I needed coffee to fuel my brain first thing in the morning, but let's talk about the eagles.
|Yup! It really is a bald eagle! |
A bald eagle has a wingspan of about 6 to 7 1/2 feet. This eagle was impressively large. Connor was thrilled when we heard it call, "kleek kik ik ik ik."
|The bowl shaped shadow in the tree is their nest!|
