Eagle blogging 

The TigerHawk family vacation in the Adirondack Mountains is barely a day old, and here a young and seemingly fearless eagle perches on a tree branch less than twenty feet off our patio. Now, it is true that the TigerHawk family camp is reasonably remote, but there are powered boats on the lake below and no less than six dogs running around, so this eagle is clearly less skittish than most. Indeed, we see this splendid eagle, which lives with a sibling and parents, because a breeding pair established themselves near our camp during the off-season. The naturalists in the family were concerned that the arrival of loud children (and believe me, we have some loud children) and dogs would scare off these magnificant creatures, but apparently, like the United States Marines, they don't run.  Posted by Hello

Finally, a closing chest-beating aimed at all you cat-bloggers out there: I just kicked your ass.

To really kick ass, I think you need to post a picture of an eagle flying with a cat in its talons, or at least tearing out entrails with its beak. Now that would be powerful stuff.

After we paid for our kids nudist summer camp for teen we found it tough to recover! I totally agree with you!
