A Large Fledgling

photo taken from an upstairs window

This baby Bald Eagle landed at our doorstep one evening recently.  He/she tried to fly but couldn't manage to lift off.  He waddled down the path toward a more open area and stayed there just looking around.  In the morning we came across him perched on a tree that had fallen over in a wind storm.  When he saw us, he spread his wings and flew down the hill.  It seemed he needed a clear spot and a higher elevation to get started.  Happy ending.

Berry Picking Time

Some birds eat the whole berry; other birds eat only the seeds.
