Some things we spotted on our adventure.

                  *Click to biggify these photos if you like*
 Duffy, " We went on an adventure! Can you spot what I spotted?"

 Duffy, " They are yearling eagles and were vey high up in the trees. They are well camouflaged but we are always on the lookout for them."

 Duffy, " Here is an adult eagle we spotted in another tree."

 Duffy, " This eagle was spotted on yet another tree ."

Duffy, "One of the adult eagles was extremely high up at the very tip of the tree. The wind was making him sway back and forth on the tree top branches. Even though he was so far up, we could tell he was the size of a large turkey. Eagles can and do hunt small dogs and cats here in Vancouver. You must always be aware of their location when you spot them on an adventure, keeping an eye on them as they are most definitely keeping theirs on you!"

Isadora, " There were other less distracting things we spotted on our walk. I will show you."

Isadora," It was a wonderful adventure and as always, we were reluctant to leave Nature's lovely gifts in order to go home! But home we went! We look forward to the next adventure presenting itself and hopefully it will be in the very near future  :) "

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

    We were considering some land on the Oregon coast that had an Eagle's nest up on the mountain side - so they flew right over the home site. That was a : ) and : ( both. We will screen in a large portion of the garden area for kitties to roam safely if we happen to move to that area. They are beautiful, amazing birds but as you said they do hunt small animals.

    Can't wait to hear of your next adventure!
