On Friday, the 27th, before I left for another "event", I spotted an adult Bald Eagle zoom in from the northwest and head toward the old nesting area. Then this past Tuesday, I spotted an adult again coming from the northwest fly over the tree line and circle below the old nest area. Now I don't want to get my hopes up too high however, two sightings within five days is impressive.
I though I might as well go into the woods and blaze my overgrown trail and sit spot...just in case. That was the purpose of my walk.
And yes, I accomplished what I set out to do. However, it was what was on the other side of my trail that made the walk all worthwhile and it wasn't eagles. It was none other than Steve Martin (my neighbor's rooster) and Otis and Millie (their goats).
Hearing the sound of my voice as I call out, "Where's my kids?" they came running from the back of their enclosure.
I had a thought recently about the purpose of my life. I decided that my purpose was to make everyone and everything that touches my life smile.
Millie always calls to me as I turn t walk away, while Otis hits the pile of fresh hay. They have gotten so big and are even more beautiful than when they were "kids."
Of course, Steve may have a different reason for my existence because, like any male, he protects those girls, crowing incessantly. He rounds them up, takes his stance close to the fence and begins crowing.
All in all, the mission was successful. After all, it made me smile...:)
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
