Really Nothing to Do With Wine

Except maybe if I can tenuously make some connection between organic farming and conservation and save the planet and all that jazz.  But I wanted to share anyway because I just think this is SO COOL.

A couple weeks ago, on our drive to work, which takes us along a lengthy stretch of the Potomac River on the Virginia side, we started to notice a crowd gathering with telephoto lens cameras on the side of the road, and that the Park Service had cordoned off an area where police cars used to lay in wait for commuters.  A few days later I was able to drive by slowly enough that I could look and see a giant nest up in a tree about 40 feet in from the side of the road.

Well, as it turns out, we saw the inhabitants the other day…..BALD EAGLES!!! Two of them, a mating pair I’d guess, nesting on the banks of the Potomac!!!!  How freaking cool is that?  I so hope I’ll be able to see the Eaglets in the near future.  But regardless…there are WILD Bald Eagles nesting in the DC area.  It gives me a thrill and I grin from ear to ear every day now when I see them perched up there, guarding their nest.
Just wanted to share!

  1. That’s really cool! You’ll have to post pics if Eaglets to turn up in the near future!

  2. That is freaking cool!!

  3. I’m pretty excited. Apparently it’s a new mating pair, but sadly the bird folks seem to think there are no eggs 😦 Maybe next year.
