Warm in the Sun

My neighbor knocked on my window this morning to point out an Eagle sitting on the roof of house near us having his breakfast. It was a magnificent sight silhouetted by the rising sun and even though my window can see in that direction, I would have missed it if she hadn't taken the time to share the sight.

The Confederate Jasmine is blooming and the smell is sweet in the crisp morning air as we walk closer to take a look. After munching a while, Eagle flies off carrying bits of some less fortunate creature back to it's nest.

It's fledgelings must be learning to fly, since to my delight I've heard their calls in the last couple of days, but haven't yet caught a sighting. Maybe by next week!
