Fledglings, Eagles and How things are.
A little sketch this morning and noticing some similarities.
The young bird has such an innate desire to move on but still needs time to grow,
immature and not yet confident in ones abilities,
still learning and taking in the environment, awkward and evolving.
I have felt like this many times in this life of mine and will
feel this way many times more.
This is just how things are.
I have been distracted and delighted lately.
It is a rare treat indeed to have so many Bald Eagles on the Rock River.
Taking every opportunity to see these magnificent birds has been occupying my
thoughts, interrupting plans, and interfering with appointments.
Eagles making an appearance on the Mississippi in winter are more common.
One or two sightings, something special, But here? On the Rock River?
A mere 15 min. drive and there is open water. A good place to fish if you're an Eagle.
I have counted eight sometimes ten just within my direct view. They are steadfast in the business at hand. Who could blame them. Protein is a priority when the actual temp. is -4 degrees.
Regal, self confidant, patient, and glorious.
