As evidenced by Diane’s blog photos and mine below.
Did you know that American bald eagles fly south to inhabit their six-foot wide nests in the fall of the year? They spruce up their nests, typically the ones they used the year before, breed, lay their eggs, hatch them, teach them to fly and then leave around May the following year? Yep. They do.
This week they arrived at their nesting grounds in Terrebonne Parish.
Look closely in the cypress tree! Up there! Do you see it?
Here, use these binoculars for a better look. The feathers look ruffled, don’t they?
Hey is that a pair? I think so, but the sites are a little blurry. It IS a pair!
WAIT! Please don’t go! We just want a closer look!
What is this eagle looking at so intently?
Do you really want to know?
It’s a swamp monster! Hurry! Run! Oh no, don’t run! Paddle!!! Paddle fast!
Stay tuned for more exciting adventures of Bayou Woman and the swamp things and a chance to win cool, neato things from Community Coffee, assuming you have all forgiven me for the previous contest, that is.
