Rare Sighting

 

I got so lucky this morning. I was on our greenway system again on my bicycle. As I started, I saw this huge bird at the top of a tree and thought it was a great blue heron which we commonly see along the river. However, it was black. As it turned its head, I could see the solid white head and knew then it was an American Eagle. It was beautiful and huge. As I rode underneath its tree, it flew off down the river, but oh, what a sight to see a huge magnificent bird like that out in the wild. They do not come into our part of the state that often.

I rode today the longest I ever have since I have started to recover from the cancer treatments. I made almost a twelve mile trip in total. I just do not understand why people come to walk a nature trail such as our greenway system and stay so glued to their cellphones that they don’t see anything but their phone screen. Some people keep the music in their earbuds turned up so high they miss all the animal sounds such as duck, geese and the herons. They miss all the beauty of the trail. Oh well, not my problem. I hope you have a blessed day and Praise God!!
