Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south.
It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle – clear, cold and sunny – so we went for a walk at Lincoln Park.
We walked through the woods on the bluff overlooking Puget Sound
and were welcomed by squirrels.
We continued down the trail through a tangle of trees
to the steep path down to the Sound below.
We arrived at the beach and were back in the sunshine where the best was yet to come –
for I looked up and saw a lone bald eagle perched majestically in the fir tree high above.
I was so happy to see him though I learned later later he might be missing a mate.
The Avian flu has arrived in Washington state, and one of the bald eagles at Lincoln Park was impacted. I believe it was taken in for care; I do hope it survives.
