National Save the Eagles Day!
May you soar on eagle wings, high above the madness of the world.

Have you ever seen one? Where did you see it?

We used to see one every day close to home on our way to the city when a new highway was built several years ago. After the highway was completed more of the wild habitat was destroyed to built a shopping plaza. We haven’t seen the eagle for quite sometime now.

When I used to work at the airport in Maine, almost every morning around 5:30am we would see one fly over the bay right next to the airport. Several of us would grab a cup of coffee and go sit out on the ramp and wait for him. It was a beautiful sight!

Yes I have seen many eagles! Love them! We also have bird refuges here and Tracy Aviary and our local zoo all have programs with them. While we were in Oregon a few years ago we saw an outdoor program in the woods. It was amazing!

I’ve seen a couple. Our zoo has one. The eagle has been injured and will not be able to be rehabilitated to live on his/her own so the eagle has a pretty neat enclosure; no bars, no top, trees, etc.
