the eagle that James saw

James told us last week about this eagle.  He appeared on the golf course; James was about 15 feet away from him.  The golf course is in Indiana.  In the northern Midwest we have eagles, but we rarely see them close up, very rarely perched on a lawn.  You can see more images of this eagle at  .The photos are by Tenna Merchent.

sparrow, sparrow again


Sparrow again!
This sparrow is the most common bird in our yards; they are everywhere. Still, I think his nut-like colors are handsome.  A common bird can be handsome, yes?
The female house sparrow is below.
