Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Bald Eagle Sighting


This is Wilde Lake.  We have a lovely view of it from our living room and dining room.


Last week as I was standing at this window on the other side of the apartment I saw a bald eagle fly by.  We are on the 11th story so it flew at my eye level which was quite interesting.


Yesterday I walked around Wilde Lake and on the north side a woman told me that the bald eagle was in a tree on the lake.  It was.  What a lovely sight.

This morning as I sat at the dining room table I saw a bird swooping over the lake so I grabbed the binoculars and sure enough it was the bald eagle again.  I watched as it landed in a tree then went for my camera.

These aren't the best pictures for sure.





Next time I'll try to do a better job steadying my hand.

The more I see of your apartment the more I love. I would sit there all day admiring that view hoping to catch a glimpse of the bald eagle.

How exciting to see a bald eagle flying at eye level! You have a lovely view from your apartment, especially with the fall colors around the lake.
