Roadkill, Buzzards, and Eagles
This morning on my way into work I saw a bald eagle! (Sorry I didn't have the camera with me.) I knew there were eagles in the area because people often spot them on the prairie and there is an eagle's nest near the farm, but I've never actually seen one. But, there he was sharing some roadkill with the buzzards. He was a full grown one. I only spotted him because of his large white tail as I drove past. I pulled over so the kids could see him and Will got to tell everyone at school that he saw a "ball" eagle that eats raccoons. He's definitely a farm boy. Not much phases him.
