Stephen Colbert Ain’t Got Nuthin’ On Him!

E Is For Eagle!


Nestled in a fairly small enclosure between the bears and the wolves is this lovely fellow.  It’s a bit of a sad story; he was injured and can no longer fly; therefore, he cannot be released back into the wild.  I’ve seen a few bald eagles in the wild, but always at a distance.

They’re big damn birds, that’s for sure.


He seemed to be keeping sentry over the picnic area, and if I’m not completely mistaken, he was watching a very loud little boy with a dour eye.


The minute I thought that, he turned.

“He’s looking at me, Ray.”

(Think the first Ghostbusters.)


He has a piercing stare, and that beak looked plenty dangerous.  I’m curious if the videos with Stephen Colbert and eagles ever featured a live eagle?  That must be something.  Look at how powerful those talons are!


He didn’t move very much, content to perch on his branch, so the photos are all very similar.


I said to my husband, “Honey, let’s go.”  And he turned and looked at me again.



Thank you for joining me for the A-Z Blog Challenge.  If you’re blogging in the challenge, please leave me a link so I can come visit you too.  If you have a moment, please check out these other fine blogs:

My theme on my Knoontime Knitting craft blog is Letterforms In Nature.  I’ll be exploring my daily round, looking for shapes in the natural world and build environment.

The theme at Noon & Wilder is The A To Z of Chicago.  Since I live here in the city and we have our Chicagoland Shifters based here, I figured I’d share a window into the city, Noon & Wilder style.

The Nice Girls Writing Naughty have a new home, and we’re blogging in the challenge again this year.  Throughout the month you’ll be hearing from each of the Nice Girls, and during the RT Booklovers Convention from April 12th to the 17th, you’ll be getting live convention reports.  Join the conversation!

The Writer Zen Garden’s brand new website is up and running, and we’re bringing you posts from me, Noony; my partner in crime, Rachel Wilder (the Wilder half of Noon & Wilder); the talented Darla M. Sands – a blogger in her own right, see below; as well as Grace Kahlo, Evey Brown, and author Tina Holland.  Check it out!
