    Great bird facts Christian, awesome photos! I wonder what bird of prey can fly the fastest?

    Wow!! Christian I love your eagle/hawk bird facts. Nana waits and watches for ‘our’ eagle, whom we have named Eddie Eagle. He loves to perch high on top of the maple tree overlooking the river in our backyard; also perches on the oldest fir tree…as you saw last summer. We have seen him soaring along the low tide/mud flats looking for a meal…maybe!!
    Your photos are excellent!!
    We saw a humming bird last night in the herb garden! So beautiful! Hugs, Nana

        Well, we haven’t seen Eddie Eagle for a few weeks now. We do see a lot of seagulls; they are beautiful to watch as they fly by over the river. Hooray for the river because it is definitely a favorite place for birds and bird-watchers!! our neighbor Nancy has seen a heron at low tide; we missed it. 😦 Hugs, Nana
