The Perfect Eagle's Nest!

Here is a perfect example of a Bald Eagle's nest...cup shaped with a flat top with Mom keeping the proverbial eagle's eye on her surroundings....just in case.

Interesting, though bowl shaped, the Bald Eagle's nest doesn't have a concave shape on the inside, but rather the top is quite flat compared to many other species.  This must have some evolutionarial advantage though I can't currently think of what it might be.

The Robin, the Orange, and the Other Robin....the Teaser

This is the Robin in  the snow, protecting his fruit.  Then yet another Robin appears in the snow....

(Having a photo program problem!  It should be rectified by tomorrow...)

The Peaceable Kingdom

Quicksilver the parrot and Squirrel the cat watch birds together.

Much more to come....currently having a blizzard and a very early Robin shows off his savvy in scavaging food when no worms are available.
