HOTD for 11-16-11 A Private Moment Between an Eagle and a Trout

16 Nov

Lunchtime for Our Nation's Symbol

I don’t feel it’s unpatriotic to show our nation’s official bird of prey in this fashion. In this year alone in my part of Minnesota I have seen too many eagles to count– so many, in fact, that seeing them doesn’t make my heart jump like it used to. Okay, yes, my trip to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha was full of heart-jumping moments, especially when I was in a 20×20 room with 6 of the magnificent birds.  That was stirring. But the birds’ resurgence has led to sightings being much more commonplace. No less awesome, but not as rare. Yay, eagles!
