We have quite a few bald eagles in the region, primarily on (relatively) near by Lake Coeur d'Alene. They do a lot of fishing from the trees along the shore.

I don't think I have ever seen one in the wild.There are giant vultures in New Jersey though, they follow the Jersey pike riding the warm updrafts and looking for roadkill. I loved to watch them when I lived there

I don't think I've seen one either... there are pictures every year in the paper of the one's on the lake. Just nice to know they're around!

We could indeed - and grand about the eagles.They are doing well and look magnificent:)
thank you for thinking of starting our day with a genuine piece of good news

Do you have a state or national birdwatch count ? We have one on 30/31 JAn run by a bird charity where you can pick one hour in the weekend and record all the birds you can see in your garden or local park or wherever.We have decided here this year to look out opposite sides of our flat - so now it is who gets the bedroom side- seagulls and jackdaws and swans ( like you, we are four flights up and one side faces the harbour)and who gets the oak tree outside the sitting room - where a wren was recently spotted ...watch this space :)

I am not sure we have that exact thing, but there are bird counters who go out and report on what they see in a day I think.

I sometimes wonder if dinosaurs had silly squeaky voices like eagles? They have figured out now that the big raptors performed some sort of mating dance,scratching the ground up with their feet. I can imagine them going 'Peep, peep.'

I have no doubt they were bird like in many ways. I wonder if they hooted like owls?

It was interesting to think of He-Lo as a very small flying dinosaur! Which, if you think of it, he was.

That did make me smile :) I love raptors.

Oh me too. We had red tailed hawks at home when I was a kid. They came after our chickens once, and killed two before my mother waded in with a broom. She had to actually poke them and whack them some to make them leave. They were a mated pair, and they were unafraid, they just spread wings out and hissed!

And I know they are not raptors, but I do love the New Jersey vultures I mentioned above.
