The boys are back in town!

Well, actually at least one of them is probably not a boy. As long as we are on a nature kick this week, take a look at this impressive couple!Eagles 9-09

There has been a nesting pair of bald eagles near our campus as long as I have worked here. Until last winter, they only made rare appearances. Then, last January, they decided the cell phone antennae on top of our water tower made for good perches. They took off again sometime in the late winter, and just reappeared this week.

Unfortunately, the birds were not very interested in posing for photos the afternoon I took these shots, hence the only angle I could get was pretty much shooting up their butts. Sorry, ‘bout that. I’ll try to do better next time. Meanwhile, most of us here just think having bald eagles hanging out on our water tower is pretty cool.

  1. Wow! I have seen several bald eagles in the past few years too. One was even seen from my back yard in suburbia. I think it’s a good sign they are becoming more visible. Their numbers must be increasing again.

  2. That qualifies as cool…We have one in one of our historic housing areas…but, in five years, I haven’t seen a mate. Since we have seen young’uns…there has to be a second one somewhere.
