So I Heard through the grape vine

Posted by uniqueminds on March 27, 2008

So I Heard trough the grape vine of some eagles liking to hang out by our lovely little river in the region, the Grand River.
This morning at 6:30 a.m. before the sun has risen I headed down to the alleged spot and waited, and waited, and waited.
Accordingly to the local business employees the eagles are in fact an everyday sight, but not today.
Then just as I was almost about to give in, one of the two Bald Eagles swooped in and perched on a branch about 25 feet away.
And here is the proof.
