I have seen more bald eagles in the past 9 months than in the past 9 years - they must be getting frisky.
My 10-year-old daughter once said, "Daddy, you have shown us several 'cold fronts' -- but, what does a 'cold back' look like?"
LOL!!! (...from the mouth of babes...)
Now there's a Viking Kitty dilemma.
Clinton said he was going to take the Eagle off the endangered species list around 98. We're holding our breath, and boy; they sure are endangered!
In two days of back roads driving, we saw one in eastern Oregon, and another one in eastern Utah. Early this summer, I also saw one in SW South Dakota, about 2 miles from our ranch.
That makes three in one year; normally we would, in comparable travels, see less than one/year.
