We had an eagle sitting in the tree behind the house the other day. We noticed it because it was so different from the usual buzzards, crows and hawks that usually hover around the house. It clearly had a white head and white tail with a yellow ring around its neck. This one was making a lot of noise and flying around in circles over the house. I'm a poor judge of distance, but I would guess the wing span was about six feet. I was especially watchful because I wasn't sure if it was thinking about my chickens. I calmed down just in time to snap a couple of photos (sorry they are such poor quality from my iPhone). And just about that time, the one I'd been watching flew up and joined a second one! I am wishing they are a couple and that the female has laid eggs in our woods.
