Eagles, The Outdoors, and Family Fun

Last weekend my family and I made our annual pilgrimage to see eagles in Guntersville, Alabama. Everyone had such a fun time. What a pleasant break from the icy weather thats been visiting the south this winter. I felt like God was shining down on us and the eagles, thawing the earth and our spirits.

This year we found additional nests, all filled with baby eagles. The eagle nest is such an impressive structure. Did you know that eagles’ nests are roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle cut in half?

The trip to Guntersville Lodge is always a spiritual and mental growth experience. I learned some new things about eagles, owls, and hawks. I received plans on how to build a screech owl box. And I sat through a short seminar on outdoor photography. Lots of things to learn at Eagle Awareness Weekends in Guntersville, Alabama.

If you want to watch an eagle from the convenience of your living room, here is a link to an eagle cam on the Berry College campus. This is the only eagle cam currently available in Georgia. This eagle is incubating a couple of eggs.

Below, I’ve posted a few shots my daughter took with a lower-end camera. I’m impressed with how well these photos turned out.

    That was very nice Scott. I saw the pictures Stephanie took and it looked like you”all had a wonderful time. From the pictures, it looked like it was cold where you were. I am glad that you and Laura’s family can go somewhere together. I look forward to seeing you and hearing more about the trip.
