Eagles etc

We were up at the church to help with the monthly Harvesters distribution this week.  It was a blustery day Thursday but we loaded potatoes, carrots, blueberries and several ready made meal kits into cars for nearly 100 families.  The November and December distribution families were down.  Maybe food was available in other places.  We jumped back in full force this month.  (Just as a side note about the food we receive for distribution from Harvesters.  I know there are sources for this food that I don’t know about, but I do know that a lot is donated by WalMart.)  

We were only a mile from home when I received a text from our neighbor Brenna telling us there were Eagles in a field nearby.  We immediately flipped a U-turn and headed back.  Turns out it was an Eagle family working on something dead, possibly a dead coyote.

We know of a huge Eagle nest over by Clinton Lake but don’t know if this family calls it home.  It is always a treat to catch a glimpse of these majestic birds.

A little later in the day, I walk into the bedroom to see a possum helping itself to some of Dan’s treats out by the windbreak. These lowly, relatively ugly animals don’t have the reputation of Eagles, but just as equally share our neighborhood.
