     Allow me to introduce you to the eagle couple!   They are just chatting away.  Any suggestions for names??  Send them to me!!

This eagle was shown on Channel 8 on the news last week.  Did you see it?  I have been stalking.........  following the eagle couple since their return a month or so ago.  Below, he is doing what nature has taught him.  Yes, that is a squirrel.  Sad, but it is the survival deal.  About 30 seconds before this image was taken, I was taking pictures of the baby squirrel and the thought crossed my mind about how they were co-habitating in the same tree.  Well, I learned quickly they don't.  I was able to get 30 shots of the next few moments and then there was no squirrel.  The eagle looked back at me every few moments as if to say, "This is what I need to do."
