OMG! OMG! I never thought I would see the day!

I am sitting at the Starbucks, waitingfor Joe M., and I just saw a BALD EAGLE circling over the parking lot!

I know that there was a sighting of a Bald Eagle nest down at the former Naval Base (maybe a mile south of here, 1.5 miles tops). But it never occurred to me that I would get to see one of the birds that most likely BUILT the nest.

There is just no mistaking an adult bald eagle for anything else -- dark brown body, brilliant whiet head, brilliant white tail. I never thought I would see the day when I got to witness the hunting behavior of a WILD bald eagle, while sitting in the ZIP code where I grew up.

WOW. What a great feeling!
