We were biking in Florida last week, off road and in the hot hot sun. DH stopped suddenly and indicated that I should slow down, get off the bike and follow him. I did of course, and saw this guy up in a tree. Bad pics of course, as he was far away and I only had my phone with me, but oh - so glorious and beautiful. We had binoculars with us and got a really good look at the majesty and beauty of this bald eagle.
In addition, we saw the Eagles nest - it is enormous, about 8 feet across.
You can just imagine baby eagles being raised, generation after generation, in this nest.
On another bike ride we had this hawk follow us around for a few miles. Did we look like mice? I can't imagine that we did, but sometimes these birds seem curious about humans. Perhaps they also know that our thumping noises sometimes scare little mice out into the open.
A more common siting was this bird, waiting for us to throw it something. Nope, sorry bird, no snacks for you.
Finally on a late night walk we saw this little guy - crouching down trying to avoid us. We took a few pics and then left him alone, he was so cute.
Happy Birdie/Animal Wednesday
