Every year the eagles return to the area about the same time as the geese. Some usually remain in the area and can be spotted in the tree line and foraging on the various carcasses of dead animals such as deer that have been hit lying in the fields roadside.
Here in Hickery Holler we keep a pair of binoculars in the dining room window to watch these beautiful birds in the tree line.
Of course we always have plenty of these fellows around. Which is why I have netting on top of not only the chicken yard but also the turkey run.
People often ask if we get bored living so far in the country. What they don't know is that Mother Nature goes out of her way to keep us entertained.
