Truth be told, I've been holding out. I had an amazing wildlife encounter late last week, but I haven't posted the photos because I haven't had time to go through them and figure out what to post and what to write. You may recall, back in January, I was keeping an eye on a bald eagle which lives near me. At the time, I posted these pictures. Since then, many days on the way to work, I've seen him sunbathing in the vicinity all alone. I figured he was a bachelor enjoying a trendy urban lifestyle. Last Friday night, from two blocks away, I spotted him sitting high up on his cell tower perch, so I decided to swing by for a closer look. And I'm glad I did. Eddie is no bachelor. I'm pleased to report he has a mate -- and a family! It's all very exciting. (By the way, I haven't forgotten about Henry and Henrietta. I just haven't had the time to check on them. Soon, though!) In this shot, Eddie is taking off for an evening flight over Sarasota after delivering dinner. Isn't he beautiful? The SDP staff had no intention of launching another bird series so soon, but as Editor-in-Chief, I figure it would be dereliction of duty if we didn't. Let the eagles soar!
