    So I had a huge bald eagle lunching in my yard a couple of days ago. I watched for awhile before stepping in to get my phone. Stunning.

    The eagle got disturbed by a passerby car backing up to take a better look. The eagle flew up in a pine tree, then I lost sight of him, so I went over to see what he was eating. Appeared to be what was left of a possum, I wanted to check because of having a big 20yr old cat outside at that time. Went back in & of course that was when the dogs HAD to go out. Two Havanese. Snack size. Looked up & saw the eagle back in a tree above his kill. Tried to hustle up the dogs. He watched us the whole time. He then just flew off, & within 20 minutes a vulture was cleaning up. Nothing left. And as Paul Harvey used to say…….and now you know the rest of the story.

    I’ve never had a Bald Eagle in my yard but Red Tail Hawks feed at my bird feeder, or should I say they eat the birds that feed from the feeder.

    We also feed a family of Red Foxes that visit every evening.

    Yeah, when we moved here it was a dirt road, not much traffic. Fortunately the house is way off the road so the dust was tolerable. Now, it’s still a back road, paved now….& if you stay on it for about 5 miles, you end up between Sam’s Club & Walmart. Needless to say, that increased traffic. We have Amish neighbors who work the field next to us, so it still feels pretty country.
