Default An American Eagle on our roof just now.

The door bell just rang and one of our neighbors said come out quietly, there is an American Eagle sitting on your roof.

There were a couple of our neighbors in golf carts stopped to see this.

Not a very good picture, but hey, we were honored to have Uncle Sam stop for a visit at our house.

Aren't they beautiful? We are lucky enough to be bordered on the back of our home by a small lake (or a large pond!) and have a large river 1/4 mile away. There is a pair of eagles who live close by and I regularly have one sitting in the tree on my back bank. They have an amazing wingspan and are just magnificent to look at. Congrats on the visit of yours!

WOW! I thought I saw an Eagle by my house when I visited earlier this year. It makes packing so much easier, knowing that I will be there to see Eagles soon!

Very nice pictures of the Bald Eagle, Gracie.

I have seen a pair of Bald Eagles several times while playing golf at El Diablo.

I envy you, Gracie. I've seen one around my pond and I swear periodically he lands on my roof because of the loud bang I hear. They are amazing creatures, I'm so happy they visit us here.

The other morning, pretty early for me, I was driving north on Morse around Mallory, and there was one perched on a lamp post. I almost crashed my car, (kidding), when I spotted it. So beautiful, graceful and a commanding presence. I thought it was a statue but when I returned it was gone. So sorry I didn't take a picture.
