It’s late March and I’m on a mission. Actually Mrs. T and I are less than a mile from our home base. Moving silently I probe the trees with my binoculars looking for clues. Distant crows break the early morning quiet. Have they returned, for the fifth consecutive year I wonder?
There high in the tree overlooking the trout ponds! I move closer but not too close. I do not want to cause any disturbance! My friends, the trout farm eagles have returned. All is well here in Bluff Country
We have lots of them, I should send you some! Hi to Mrs T and Lily:)ReplyDelete
These are always majestic. they don't scare very easily.ReplyDelete
You have very wonderful neighbors.ReplyDelete
We get an occasional one. When Hubby and I were in Iowa this spring we saw dozens....even way out in the country far from the Mississippi. They've certainly made a comeback.
Gosh, I wish I had neighbours like that. I would be in my element. You are lucky.ReplyDelete
Those nest can weigh well over a ton. The babies ones near me are getting big, headed over to say hi this weekend.ReplyDelete
That is a good description of crows calling in the distance. The memories I have when I lived on the farm as a kid was the call of the crows and the chatter of the chip monks. I liked making the cawing sound as if I were a bird. You have not greened up much there.ReplyDelete
Lucky, lucky you to be neighbors with such majesty. I have never seen one in the wild.ReplyDelete
You live in a wonderland ... I'm envious.ReplyDelete
Oh, that must be great.ReplyDelete
It's great that the eagles have returned. They must like your neighborhood.ReplyDelete
So amazing. Enjoy the eagles.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the well wishes for my farmer market plans.
Hooray! You are so lucky.ReplyDelete
How cool to have eagles nesting so close to home. The nest must be huge!ReplyDelete
Isn't that exciting??!!ReplyDelete
I thought my owls had gone, but I heard him call to her today. I CANNOT FIND THE NEST!!!!!
What cool neighbors! Our backyard crows scare the eagles away, sadly.ReplyDelete
Hi Troutbirder, Wow, this is just great! Hope you will share more photos as the season progresses. Very cool!ReplyDelete
