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.
