Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Staying in the Moment

I *just* saw a bald eagle flying by!  There I was at the computer reading what's new on Wildlife Gardeners, when I glanced out the window to my left, one room away; that is when I saw it.  Being such a large bird it was no mistaking it even across about two acres.  The tell-tale white on its head and tail let me immediately recognize what I was seeing.  I jumped from the chair and ran to the kitchen window to get a better view--I'm sure the cats started at my sudden movement.

At the window, I got a better view, and instead of running back for the camera, I just enjoyed the sight.  That is the longest and closest I've ever seen one.  Had I got the camera, I'd likely have missed it all.  Sorry no pics to share, but I feel I'm a better man for having seen it. :)
