We went to the breakfast nook to eat a bowl of bean soup yesterday... in the early afternoon. As I brought the spoon up to my mouth I saw it. I didn't elaborate....I shouted bald eagle! There was the huge bird soaring on the breezy winds. Over and over again it flew over our house. We live in a neighborhood quite close to the Rock River. I have seen a couple when we were on our way along the river to Rockford. This area is known for being the winter home for these majestic birds. I've seen them many times, but I still get a thrill when I watch them. Last year many in our nation were watching the eagle cam in Decorah, Iowa. The Decorah Eagles are back for another year! On Feb. 17, the female eagle laid her first egg. Watch them grow! This eagle cam is brought to you by the Raptor Resource Project, who set up this cam atop a tree at a fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa.
I know that we'll be watching this again this year.
