OH MY GAWSH! A bald eagle in town!!! She lives about seven minutes driving time from my house, that'd be 50 seconds eagle time.
I tried explaining to her about the circle of life in nature, and why that eagle might be there, in her neighborhood.
You see, I'm a nature girl at heart. I mean, something like this makes my heart pound harder than beautiful-hand-made-high dollar on clearance sale, yarn. So I explained, you have four things birds need to survive and thrive...
4) a place to raise young.
Her eyes glazed over and she said, I just don't want it to get my dog. Apparently they also found a little pile of dog collars. So, watch your dogs. Eagles are coming to town.
