One of the best things about living where we do is the abundant wildlife behind our house (this can also be the worst thing when a vixen is screaming at 2 in the morning). Last night during dinner, my oldest daughter spotted two bald eagles behind the house and amazingly they didn't fly away in the time it took for me to locate my camera and get out onto the deck to get a picture. We've been watching the juvenile (the one with the brown head) dive for fish on the pond over the past few weeks, but this is the first time we've been able to capture two eagles resting in a tree! What a treat - I grew up in San Jose, CA and never saw a bald eagle in my backyard!
