Baby Eagles in the Nest!



Yes, there are baby eagles...

Although I'm not sure how many...


As we first drove up, one baby eagle was visible...
 
 
But we only got a quick glimpse of it before it was tucked down in the nest.

 
I was so focused on the baby and the activity in the nest...
 

That I almost missed the mate sitting on a tree limb not far away.
We watched his colors seem to change as the sun sank lower...

And got home just as the sun was setting.

Yes, I have to admit, I do have a fascination with these birds.
Besides being our national bird,
they just seem to command our attention.
I think God must have liked them, also,
because He made a lot of interesting references to them in the Bible.
(If you're interested, click HERE to see a few of them.)
 
One that I find very interesting is from Proverbs 30:18-19 which says:
"There are three things that are too amazing for me,
four that I do not understand:
the way of an eagle in the sky,
the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
and the way of a man with a maid."

I have only seen one eagle recently and it was perched in a small tree alongside the interstate. Wonder if that semi behind me would have stopped if I slammed on the brakes. Doubtful..lol Great pictues. I like the sunset, too!
