April 2, 2011 – Nesting Eagles

I’ve been obsessed over the last few days watching the Decorah Eagles and their hatching family. It is so very Zen to watch how they protect, nurture, and calmly adjust the nest surrounding their family.

If only my nest were 80 feet in the air, away from pollution, video games, and drama, and I could corral my tiny babies under my wings for safekeeping at all times.

Of course, I think they’d still complain about what I’m making for dinner by the looks of the rabbit that’s been sitting by the nest for days…
