Eagle Spotting! (for real this time)

We were on our way to Lowe's yesterday when I saw these 2 eagles about a quarter of a mile off the road. After Chris almost crashed the car because of my excited screaming, he turned around and pulled off the edge of the road.

Since there was an embankment and a barb wire fence, we didn't get very close. (I know we are bloggers and should have jumped the fence on to posted property)

I took quite a few pictures hoping something would turn out. Being that we were so far away, not many came out very clear.

We searched the area and the surrounding area last year because we heard that there were eagles nests around. We never did find them last year.

We went back today with our tripod to see if they were still there but didn't have any luck finding them again. Those of you that visit our blog often may remember 2 posts that we did back in April and May. A friend told us about 2 eagles he had been watching. They turned out to be Osprey. We got the real thing this time.

Great pictures! We have both Eagles and Osprey around here.

Love the song by the way, I'm a country girl. ;-)
