The symbol of America

There were pelicans, hummingbirds and egrets flying around recently, but we didn’t bother looking at them. Those gorgeous birds were eclipsed by the arrival of a stranger: a bald eagle in the trees behind our house. It’s a rare sighting in these parts – the last time one was seen here was ten years ago. Maybe this one will hang around for a while, if the crows let it.

Max has written about bald eagles here.

The crows weren’t too pleased about the eagle’s arrival because eagles eat hatchlings.  They tried to persuade it to leave.  The eagle wasn’t going to be pushed away on this occasion.
