We could not have been more wrong!!! We found the nest and we saw the eagles! We actually saw them fly in and out of the nest about seven times in the thirty or so minutes we were there! It was majestic and spectacular and awesome.
So Llano is about 60ish miles away from our house. Like I mentioned, we didn't really have any specific directions, so we just headed that way. When we got close to where we thought it might be there were several cars pulled off the side of the road. We were not sure, but stopped the car to check it out.Is that huge mass in that tree the nest? We are not sure. Oh wait, something is moving on top of the nest. ZOOM IN.
Oh my goodness, it is a bald eagle. Just sitting there looking around. We were thrilled. We thought that would be the high point of the viewing and we stood there staring at it for a long time. Kids start losing interest after about four or five minutes and they start wandering down the fence line. Pretty soon they come screaming back with some exciting news.
Next up, they find the leg of the poor deer. Seriously gross! What else is out in these woods besides eagles. Do we have some mountain lions or something we should be on the lookout for?
Hubby says "Everyone say it together now. Thanks Dad for bringing us out here - it was really cool." It was. He was right.
Hope your Saturday was also spectacular!
